Today begins three weeks of jazz and creative music at the Banff Centre.
Last night as I wandered around the park-like campus (a little warily as there is a cougar on the prowl), I saw three elk hanging outside the music building. Lots of people were already inside playing. The amount of music that comes out of here is just astounding, and I’ve got a bunch of new things that I can’t wait to dig into. Clarence Penn, Donny McCaslin, Robert Rodriguez, Matt Brewer, Hank Roberts, and Jeff Parker are all here, too.
