Jazz Club of the Month : The Rex

In Jazz Clubs on October 13, 2011 at 8:13 am

Jazz Club in Toronto – Canada

“Where jazz musicians come to hear jazz.”

From humble beginnings, The Rex Hotel Jazz & Blues Bar has grown into a musical mecca presenting 19 shows per week.

Since the late ’80s, the Rex has been at the forefront of Toronto’s thriving local jazz scene. The casual atmosphere, eclectic mix of retro-chic decor, and an exciting variety of draught beer combine to make The Rex feel like a second home.

The Jazz & Blues Bar continually attracts Canada’s finest musicians and is unique in that it remains distinctly inexpensive and affordable for the budget-conscious. During the annual Downtown Jazz Festival, The Rex is one of the central venues with the busiest programme. All year long, it’s not unusual for world-renowned musicians (like Kurt Elling, Randy Brecker, Wynton Marsalis & Lincoln Center Orchestra, Chris Potter, Roy Hargrove’s RH Factor, Joshua Redman, Russel Malone, Harry Connick Jr., George Garzone, Frank Tiberi, David Binney, Mark Turner, The Bloomdaddies, Ari Hoenig’s Punk Bop, Willem Breuker Kollektiv, Ricardo Del Fra, Derek Trucks Band, Mulgrew Miller, Eric Reed, Stacy Rowles, Ani Difranco, Maceo Parker, Dave Liebman, Seamus Blake, Chris Tarry, Henry Hey, Pete McCann, Chris Cheek, Tim LeFebvre, Keith Carlock, Gary Versace, Dan Weiss, Slide Hampton, Joe & Pat LaBarbera, Christian Scott, Rob McConnell, Donny McCaslin, Ben Monder, Scott Colley, Antonio Sanchez, Don Byron and many more) to show up on our stage.

At The Rex, we stay true to our motto: “More Great Jazz than anywhere else, all the time!”

Jazz Club of the Month : The Sounds

In Jazz Clubs on October 10, 2011 at 2:06 pm

Jazz Club in Brussels – Belgium

You are not in Chicago or New Orleans, you are in Ixelles. But if you are under the impression of being somewhere else, that’s understandable : the atmosphere, the fragrance, the warmth and the music have the color of true, authentic jazz.
The « Sounds », run since 1986 by Sergio Duvalloni and Rosy Merlini, has had the best Belgian and international jazzmen on stage, and the numerous memorable concerts make it a ‘must’ for all jazz fans and lovers of good music in general.

And there is not only the music, but also the style, the cocktails (Sergio !), the delicious Italian dishes (Rosy !!) and the quality of an authentic Brussels venue.
