An overview of the upcoming Ottawa Jazz Festival (June 21-30)

The Ottawa Jazz Festival is running from June 21sth to 30th and features a diverse lineup of amazing artists. Today we get an overview of the 2024 Festival and hear some stunning music by artists that you may not be familiar with. Petr Cancura is the Artistic and Executive Director of the Ottawa Jazz Festival. He joins us on the show to set up this year's festival, talk about taking the helm from Catherine O'Grady and to turn us on to some amazing music by great artists featured in the festival lineup. Preparing for my interview with Petr, I dug into the music of some artists he suggested we feature. I didn't know them and I really loved everything he suggested I listen to... which bodes well for the entire lineup of amazing artists he has selected for this year's event.
