Geoff Chapman's Thursday column on the coming week in jazz always bears reading, as do his concert reviews. Another jazz writer very worthy of attention is Ajay Heble, the director of the Guelph Jazz Festival. His recent book, Landing on the Wrong Note, is a major contribution. Heble is also editing an anthology of the papers delivered during the seminars on jazz and improvised music that run in tandem with the Guelph festival. IN CONCLUSION It is not self-evident, and shouldn't be taken for granted, that Toronto has become such a bustling jazz town. Compared to similarly sized -- and less flourishing -- U.S. cities like Philadelphia and Detroit, the African-Canadian community here was never anything like the size o( the African-American communities that were the base of jazz history south of the border. Significant contributors to the jazz fabric of Toronto include such musicians as Cy McLean, Connie Maynard and currently, · Archie Alleyne, Frank Wright and Joe Sealy, but overall it's striking that there is more jazz activity in Toronto now than in Philly and Motor City, which were once such important jazz centres. One answer may be found in the cultural orientation of Toronto during the first decades of jazz history. English-Canadian culture in the first part of the twentieth century was still a culture very much involved with British mores. Great Britain and France were the parts of Europe where jazz caught on most intensely, and this likely encouraged ears to open up to the music here. . Add this to the physical proximity of the U.S., and you have a potent mix of cultural propensity lnd geographic opportunity to go nuts about jazz. What is evident today is that if you look at all the jazz activity in and around Toronto, you see a scene that is alive and healthy, more so than in most of the cities where the music was born. It would be nicer yet if the people who make this music, here and elsewhere, were more prosperous. But that's another story. uit Oakville, 0 , C E-mail: Laura Adlers Director st Management Artist Representation Grant Writing Project Coordination NOVEMBER 1, 2001 - DECEMBER 7, 2001 wholenote 45
