A Tribute to Jacques Emond

A Tribute to Jacques Emond who sadly died this weekend after suffering from a stroke. Jacques was the producer and host of Swing is in the Air here on CKCU and he was the programming manager for the Ottawa International Jazz Festival for over 20 years, until he retired from the position in 2010. I had the pleasure of working with Jacques at the Festival from 1987 through 1989 when I was hired as the Managing Director of the Festival. Since I knew very little about jazz and was hired for my enthusiasm, energy and overall love of music, Jacques was the anchor of the jazz programming at the festival during those years and he eventually grew into the Festival's artistic director - a term he disliked so he insisted on being called the programming manager. I cannot possibly pay effective tribute to his knowledge of jazz, his love of music and culture or his contributions to his community but I will try this evening in words and music.
