Ottawa Jazz Festival Picks

Vacation time is almost here which means it’s time to reveal my choices for this year’s Ottawa Jazz Festival.  First, I have to give major kudos to the festival organizers this year as it’s the first time as there are acts that match my interests on 8 out of 11 days.  Without further delay, here are the acts I will be seeing (weather permitting of course):

June 23 Alvin Youingblood Hart | Elvin Bishop & Charlie Musselwhite

June 24 SF Jazz Collective

June 25 Sarah McLauchlan

June 26 Mackenzie Rhythm Section | Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings | 24th Street Wailers

June 27 Trombone Shorty

June 28 Buffy Sainte-Marie

June 29 Jazz at Lincoln Centre Orchestra with Wynton Marsallis | Judith Hill

July 3 Brian Wilson’s Pet Sound 50th Anniversary | Hot Sardines

There are lots of great acts to see, but the days I am most looking for are June 26 and July 3. It’s going to be a great vacation this year!
