Improved jazz/improvised music listings are coming soon!

It's said that there are two seasons in Ottawa-Gatineau: “construction”, and "winter".

And so, after years of service and literally hundreds of thousands of reads by jazz fans, our listings database and presentation system are well-worn, and so are being completely upgraded right now.

As a result, our listings will be a bit of a 'bumpy construction zone' in the near-term - but they will be greatly improved and smooth like a newly paved road as we continue our 6th year of operation. (We regret that it is an impractical amount of work to maintain both the old and new listings at the same time.) Our new jazz event listings will be the best ever: easier and nicer to read on all kinds of devices, from phones to full-size computers.

You can read our event listings during our update period by subscribing to our free weekly jazz news and events newsletter. Or send a blank email to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it

We respect your privacy. We will never share your email address, and you may unsubscribe at any time by using the link in each newsletter.

Thanks for your patience and interest - and see you on the scene!
