The great Canadian city has been a must stop for The Guitar Channel for a couple of years now for the Montreal Jazz Festival. The program is always great and full of great musicians. In the video blogging episode below you will have extracts from concerts, live shots from the outside concerts, micro-interviews and more.
Montreal 2019 - Video Blogging the Jazz fest
Concerts of 2019
Here are the concerts I went to during this edition:
- George Benson: despite being completely jet lagged, I enjoyed a lot this concert, especially the second part which was more up beat.
- Jacob Collier: great concert by the super talented multi-instrumentist youtuber who is now with a full band.
- Rodrigo y Gabriela: excellent show by the duo. The crowd loved it, so did I. I hope to interview them in the future.
- Peter Frampton: probably the best concert and biggest surprise as I did not expect such a level of energy.
- Juan Carmona: deep and powerful Flamenco concert with some great solo pieces as well as music with the band.
The great press room is always a superb work environment for the media:
