Stay Up Late

Vancouver Magazine - - City Jazz Fest -

To know the heart of the fest, says Keith Ma­clach­lan, jazz per­cus­sion­ist, trum­pet player and writer of The Jazz Shed blog, don’t miss the late-night jam ses­sions.

“The ses­sions are the truest part of whole event. They’re a mix of who­ever shows up, lo­cals or out-of-town­ers—a good spicy gam­ble where you’re guar­an­teed to hear some of the best jazz dur­ing the fes­ti­val. Peo­ple who have never met be­fore get up on the stand, call a tune and bring down the house.”

Late-night jams are held at Frankie’s Jazz Club on Beatty Street from 11 p.m. to 1 a.m. (roughly), led by Vancouver sax­o­phone heavy­weight Mike Allen and his quar­tet.
