celebrated our first anniversary of operation this weekend, on July 3, 2010. Or we would have, if we weren't so busy at the jazzfest :-)

In our first year of operation

  • we emailed 52 informative, weekly site update newsletters to an ever-increasing number of subscribers
  • we published over 100 previews, interviews, photo sets, podcasts, and reviews, and
  • we listed more than 1000 jazz and improvised music events

We've certainly proven that the jazz and improvised music scene in Ottawa-Gatineau is vibrant, diverse, interesting, and worth hearing and seeing !

Thanks to everyone who took time to give us encouragement and feedback in the past 12 months. Thanks also to the clubs, restaurants and musicians who continue to provide us with timely event information, patiently answer our questions, and of course, present great music. And thanks to everyone who has promoted, tweeted, or linked to

Last but not least, we thank everyone who participated in the scene as an attentive listener (especially as Café Paradiso when we were trying to listen).

We look forward to covering the scene in the next year. We have lots more ideas and improvements planned. Your help, support, and comments are always welcomed and appreciated.

See you on the scene!

Brett and Alayne
