Festival prime time

It's been almost a month since we wrapped the 2012 TD Toronto Jazz Festival and I feel myself slowly going into jazz festival withdrawal. Happily, there are still lots of festivals to catch around Ontario over the next several weeks. In case you're suffering from similar symptoms, I figured I would list some of the upcoming festivals. As is always the case when creating these sorts of lists, it's likely that I've missed a few. If you notice something missing, let me know.

I'd like to make a special mention of the Harbord St. Jazz Festival, launching its first edition this year. Under the artistic direction of local saxophonist Ryan Oliver, the festival is starting small, but features some of the top musicians in Toronto - and some of the top food in the city too. It's exciting to see these sorts of initiatives get off the ground, and we wish them the best of luck.

Okay - here's the list:

Happy jazz festivaling!
