(from Toby Hughes, 17.11.23):
It is a privilege to welcome Gregg Stafford on trumpet, direct from New Orleans for one night only. This annual event brings some New Orleans sizzle to Toronto in a cold month, and proves that traditional jazz is alive and well in Toronto.

Born and raised in New Orleans, Gregg Stafford was mentored from a young age by the late, great Danny Barker. Widely considered to be one of the finest trumpet players today in the traditional New Orleans style, Gregg continues to be featured at the many New Orleans jazz landmarks and festivals, and in Europe and Scandinavia. 

Backing will be a stellar band representing some of the best of local Toronto classic jazz bands: Toby Hughes alto sax; Kid Kotowich trombone; Colin Bray bass; Jack King banjo; Roberta Hunt piano; Chuck Clarke drums.

Direct from New Orleans, this legendary trumpeter makes another special visit to New Orleans North.

Sponsored by Mary Simpson, this is a superb opportunity to hear and enjoy New Orleans jazz as it was meant to be played, along with a superb back-up band.

Not to be missed.
