If you love vocal jazz there's local fav Kellylee Evans, and Montreal jazz wunderkind Nikki Yanofsky, American singer-pianist Patricia Barber, innovative Swedish singer Lina Nyberg, and Cape Verdean original Carmen Souza.
You can also hear the cutting edge, whether it's in the NYC mainstream (Jason Moran, Tom Harrell, Steve Kuhn. Kurt Rosenwinkel, Larry Goldings, Peter Bernstein, and Bill Stewart), or in the avant-garde (William Parker, Hamid Drake, Ken Vandermark).
There are big bands from Scotland and Norway, and groups from France and even Lithuania. And to top it all off, a star-packed Great Canadian Jazz series, with two of the Jazz Juno winners from 2013, along with many musicians from Western and Central Canada who haven't played in Ottawa recently.
