After years of failed attempts at bringing you the best of Montreal’s Jazz Fest, we finally discovered the magic recipe for creating the best Jazz Fest article: it’s simple, we just create our “favorite shows” list, and you the reader takes it from there, and do all the actual work of going to the shows, making an opinion about it, and finally sharing this opinion in the comments section of this article.

Smart, no? Managers call this delegation. I just call it laziness. It's definitely easier than trying to blog about the Jazz Fest.

So here it goes, Montreal-Clubs Favorite Show list:

Free

Kaba Horo: Take Bulgarian-style Gypsy music, mix jazz, funk, rock and you get Montreal-based Kaba Horo.

Kalmunity: If you don’t already know about Kalmunity, that’s just scary. You’re given an excellent chance to discover them for free, so go for it.

Stomp All-Stars: Independent record label Stomp, a long time Montreal darling, putting up a party-show featuring a collective of its musicians. Need I say more?

Blue King Brown: Don’t know them, but it looks like a possible discovery, straight from the other side of the world, Australia.

La fanfare du Belgistan: In case you haven’t noticed, or your still a 16 year old stuck listening to Lil Wayne, Gypsy-inspired music is the bomb, and this Belgian collective seem to stand their ground on the topic.

Souljazz Orchestra: Take everything good, and throw in the mixing pot, you get Souljazz Orchestra.

Artist of the year: Goofy disco-pop, perfect party concept.

Afro-Cuban All Stars: Both a free and paying show, Cuban music bringing a little of the magic of the Caribbean island to our own little island. Not to be missed.


Paying

Bonobo: Chill and groovy beats.

The Orb: These guys have been around for so long, making chill electronic music.

Erik Truffaz with Murcof, Talvin Singh: I don’t know Erik Truffaz nor Murcof, but Talvin Singh is pure gold.

Ben Harper: If your of the female sex, and you haven’t seen Bern Harper live, you have absolutely no idea of what you’re missing.

Harlem Gospel Choir: you won’t hear gospel like this at many other places.


If you think our selections sucks, then make you own and post it here (all the artists performing at the 2009 edition of the Jazz Fest can be found here).

PS: Here is a video of Girl Talk doing a guerrilla performance at the 2007 Jazz Fest. Unfortunately, this won't happen this year as Girl Talk is not part of the performing artists.
