Amused by Jazz

In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Muse.”


Amused by Jazz music I had to visit to get a taste of the 2015 Montreal Jazz Fest that attracts over 3000 musicians from 30 countries.

Friday 26, 2015, the second day of this annual music festival was a gorgeous day and I wanted to experience what was happening, I’m glad I did.

The jazz fest attracts a lot of talent from a lot of places each year attracting about 2 million people including more than 150,000 tourists that generate $100 million revenue providing more than 2000 jobs in Montreal.

These are some of the figures I happened upon while checking out the list of venues on the CBC news site.

As my simple video shows Montreal has all sorts of talented people during these times, some imported professionals like popular Jack Condon and his Beirut Band or local pros like the Barr Brothers, and the assortment of local buskers along Saint Catherine street.
