Halifax Jazz Festival

When: July 8-16 2011

The biggest and best jazz festival in the region continues to push the formal boundaries of what is jazz with its invites. Consider artists such as The Pharcyde and Digable Planets, with at least a foot in hip hop, or Keren Ann and Jill Barber, with their pop and/or folk stylings as big a part of their music as jazz. Someone said variety is the spice of life. The jazz fest will be so spicy it’ll burn your damn mouth! –Carsten Knox
