A Tribute to Jacques Emond

A fabulous collection of Ottawa Jazz luminaries gather to pay tribute to Jacques Emond the host of Swing Is In The Air who sadly passed away two weeks ago due to a sudden stroke. Jacques made a massive contribution to his community over the years as a man who passionately spread his love of jazz music to everyone and anyone! We miss you Jacques. Thanks for all you contributed to our lives.

Joe and guests - I had to miss this on Sunday but finally had time to listen today (On Demand - what a great feature). Thanks for the great musical and story tribute to the memory of Jacques and the indelible mark he has left on the Ottawa jazz scene.
