My colleague Doug Fischer and I have put our heads together to compile this list of artists who should play next year’s TD Ottawa International Jazz Festival. While we will leave it to the festival’s staff to do the negotiating and scheduling. No need to thank us, guys — just send us our consulting fees in the mail.
(By the way, this might not be as futile or egotistical exercise as you might think. Compare this year’s lineup with my programming suggestions of a year ago.)
Possible artist-in-residence choices:
Brian Blade (Mama Rosa and whatever else he wants to do)
