Win­ter Jazz Fes­ti­val

Where Ottawa - - Hot Dates -

Two pi­anos, two key­boards, and a drum kit — th­ese are the tools Mouse on the Keys use to cre­ate their haunt­ing, jazz-in­flu­enced, ex­per­i­men­tal mu­sic. Based in Ja­pan, the trio blends aspects of rock and roll with the gen­tler strains of clas­si­cal, jazz, and funk. They’re just one of sev­eral bands per­form­ing at this year’s Ottawa Win­ter Jazz Fes­ti­val. Other names, many of them from Ottawa, in­clude John Geg­gie’s Jour­ney Band, Mon­tréal Gui­tare Trio, The Choco­late Hot Pock­ets, and Juno Award-nom­i­nated chanteuse Carol Wels­man. ot­tawa­jaz­zfes­ti­
