These stories about groups discovered in the subway continue to fascinate me. This is a particularly good one, with this horn-powered New York band launched to fame when a tourist filmed them on his cellphone. A gigantic groove machine.

Place Heineken

My first new favourite group this year. You’ll have 4 opportunities to catch them, 3 chances to see them again, 2 shots at singing their hymns at the top of your lungs, and one last stab at musical salvation.

Incredibly hypnotic and groovy. A YouTube phenomenon, banned from playing the NYC subway, this trio brings the cool back to the saxophone…

One of the best local fusions of classical and jazz, powered by the talented writing of Olivier Hébert. Enjoy a refined musical cocktail on Sunday, July 3.

Switching between trumpet and vocals, this artist made a stunning entrance into the musical jazz landscape (and my own), racking up a JUNO nomination. Her aesthetic reminds me of Gretchen Parlato.

Signed to the Flying Lotus label, this producer is a supremely gifted jack-of-all-trades. McFerrin is an artist who never needs to be introduced as “son of.”

A musical UFO zooming in straight from England, commanded by saxophonist Shabaka Hutchings. Not sure if the seating arrangement in the Gesù can accommodate this cosmico-funky-jazzy-electro trip!

MusiquePlus | CKOI 96,9 MTL | 96 Virgin Radio | CHOM97.7 The Spirit of Rock

When a soul revival becomes a new conception of soul. Not to be missed, especially as the opening act for Lord Huron.

Finally–the return of one of today’s finest jazz talents. A new album due on the ECM label sets the tone. This will be the last show I see at the 2016 Festival, closing things on a high note.
