Pat LaCroix & Ted O'Reilly release photo collection of local jazz greats

Congratulations to Pat LaCroix and Ted O'Reilly on the publication of a exquisite collection of photos of local jazz luminaries with expert commentary by Ted O'Reilly. Toronto Jazz Treasures was the brainchild of Pat's late wife Naomi Patricia. She conceived it, named it and brought it to life. It is a celebration of the fantastic Jazz musicians who live, perform and teach the beautiful art of Jazz music in Toronto. The book consists of 100 black and white portraits Pat made of these musicians and the histories of their careers, beautifully written by Ted O'Reilly.
