Jazz vocalist  Renée Yoxon and keyboard player François Gravel have just completed two years of playing together every Monday night in the lower level of the Mercury Lounge (formerly Bar 56, now the Overkill Bar). That makes them one of the longer-running weekly acts in the city.

OttawaJazzScene.ca editor Alayne McGregor interviewed Renée the day before her anniversary show, asking her for her secrets of success, and what a Monday late-night crowd  is really like.
