11pm to 4am
stay tuned for 2016's jam date
The late night/early morning hours are a period of time when a certain kind of magic happens...The spirits take hold, the night-time mojo ebbs and flows, and sometimes boils over, coursing through your veins, quickening the blood, and easing all the rough edges. The stars align, and all other manner of welcome phenomena inform the night's proceedings.
Synchronicity, alchemy, voodoo, fairy dust, call it what you will, but an electrically-charged night, with some incredible, spontaneous music, is usually in store. And, at some point, God himself enters the room...
perhaps, someone in the audience, or more than a few, digs it. And
the language of Jazz continues to be spoken.
So, it's always been the right time for a jam, and it's a super way for musicians and fans to get together and blow off some steam. And it's great way to reconnect, or hook up for the 1st time.
You can bet on fun, conviviality, and you can bet on some metaphysical, musical magic happening - and a connectedness that happens because of our shared love for this wonderful music.
Back in 2011, I named these nights the 'Late Night Jazz on OZ - All-Star Improv Jam Series'. This year, 2016 marks our 6th.
We thank TD Toronto Jazz Festival for championing this wonderful music all these years, and for bringing us on as an official venue back in 2012. And certainly, we thank the musicians, and the Jazz Gods out there somewhere...
Stay tuned for the surprise date.
