Jazz TD Award

Established in 1982, each year the Concours de Jazz (the TD Grand Jazz Award since 2010) honours the most popular Canadian jazz group among those registered in the Concours and presented as part of the outdoor program. In accordance with the competition rules, all artists and groups registered in it must present a repertoire composed mainly of original material.
