TD EDMONT INTERNATIONAL JAZZ FESTIVAL 2015
Since 2006, the TD Edmonton International Jazz Festival has been bringing the world’s best jazz to Edmonton.
GO GO PENGUINS PERFORMANCE
The TD Edmonton International Jazz Festival traces its roots back to 2005, when local musicians and business owners teamed up with the Jazz Society of the Yardbird Suite to produce the 60-event “Yardbird Jazz Festival,” which sought to promote Edmonton’s vibrant jazz scene, as well as to offer young people the chance to learn from some of the best musicians in a workshop setting. From this fledgling festival, the Edmonton Jazz Festival Society was born, an organization which would go on to ensure that the success of the festival would continue for many years to come.
HI TIDE PERFORMANCE GALLERY
With oscillations between soulful grooves and barrages of noise, Edmonton’s High Tides has a unique brand of instrumental psych music that has garnered them a strong following over the last four years. They successfully captured their intense live sound on their 2015 release “O’Keeffe” and are currently readying a follow-up record of all original material.
