In 2020, with jazz festivals across the country forced to cancel their regular programming, our friends at JAZZYYC in Calgary brought together presenters from coast to coast for the first ever Canadian Online Jazz Festival - or COJAZZ. COJAZZ is back again this year, and features contributions from 18 jazz festivals and presenters from across Canada - a mix of live-streamed and pre-recorded concerts which will exhibit the full breadth and depth of Canada’s unique jazz tapestry.

For our COJAZZ 2021 presentation, we’re proud to feature highlights from our 2021 TD Toronto Jazz Festival Summer Concert Series - music from Sammy Jackson, Elmer Ferrer Group, Jesse Ryan and Bridges, Jane Bunnett & Maqueque, the Shuffle Demons, Rich Brown’s New Abeng Quartet, Shakura S'Aida and Joe Sealy - 60 minutes showcasing some of this city’s best musicians.

Tune in Sunday, November 7 at 7 pm EST for our special COJAZZ 2021 presentation. Watch here, on Facebook or on YouTube. And for complete COJAZZ details, including a schedule of performances, visit
