Listeners looking for the Carleton University Jazz Camp concert, A Tribute to Charlie Parker on Wednesday August 10, were guided not just by one, but by two rainbows. While the pots of gold may have been elsewhere, musical treasures were to be found right under the rainbows, in Kailash Mital Theatre.

Phil Nimmons and David Braid play at Chamberfest on Monday (from the vault)

Phil Nimmons (clarinet) and David Braid (piano) inspire each other at the Ottawa Jazz Festival in 2006. ©Brett Delmage, 2006Phil Nimmons, the Canadian Dean of Jazz, and Juno award winner David Braid  have made some interesting improvised live music together for clarinet and piano in the past five years. From that came their album, Beginnings.

As part of that collaboration, they played an improvised duo concert in the NAC Studio at the Ottawa Jazz Festival on June 22, 2006. Peter Hum interviewed Phil Nimmons before that show.  You can view photos from that show from the OttawaJazzScene.ca archives, below.

On Monday August 1 from 10:30 p.m. to midnight you can again hear Nimmons and Braid, this time joined by another clarinetist, Jim Campbell, for a concert of "new jazz and structured improvisation". It should be a cool way to wrap up your long weekend.

Django Libre gets listeners out of their seats at Rendez-Vous Rideau Jazz Stage

Django Libre got listeners out of their seats at the Rendez-Vous Rideau Jazz festival Stage on June 27, with their strongly swinging versions of standards. Their one-hour set, which included All of Me, Django's Tiger, Bie Mir Bist du Shone, Nuages, Oh Lady Be Good, Troublant Bolero, Sweet Georgia Brown and others kept a trio of sharply-dressed swing dancers busy on the 'dance floor'. The audience responded with a standing ovation and a call for an encore – but at the Rendez-Vous Rideau Stage, when your time is up, it's up, and so listeners had to be satisfied by buying all the CDs that the group had brought with them.

The were joined at the Rideau Centre show by Richard Page on clarinet.

"King of Swing" at Billings Estate Museum, Thursday July 7

Swing dancers perform in front of the Orchestra at Billings Estate Museum ©Brett Delmage, 2007There were over 140 concerts at the Ottawa Jazz Festival. Some of them were jazz, but none were a classic big band.

What's a big band lover to do? Worry no longer: The Ottawa Jazz Orchestra (previously Impressions in Jazz Orchestra) will perform at the Billings Estate Museum from 7:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. on Thursday July 7. They will recall the 1920s, 1930s and 1940s and the time when Swing was King. Ottawa Jazz Orchestra will play music by Benny Goodman, Duke Ellington, Artie Shaw and Glenn Miller and they'll  be joined by the dynamite Swing Dynamite dancers. The teachers from Swing Dynamite will also present a free swing dance lesson during the concert break.

With a termperature of around 20C and very low risk of rain, it promises to be a great evening.

On Saturday July 2, Bela Fleck and The Flecktones returns to the Ottawa Jazz Festival's main stage - 7 years later, almost to the hour. Three of the four members who appeared in 2004 will again play this year, in the group's "original line-up":

  • Bela Fleck – leader, banjo
  • Victor Wooten – bass
  • Roy Futureman Wooten – percussion, drums

Howard Levy (piano, harmonica), who will play on Saturday, was replaced by Jeff Coffin on tenor sax in 2004.
