     au revoir

    FIJM 2008 is now finished. As crowds made their way home, large videos of honoree Oscar Peterson were displayed on the side of nearby buildings. 'Au revoir' is used to express farewell, but literally translates to 'till [we] see [you] again'. Next year is both the Festival's 30th anniversary, and WBGO's. We're already looking forward to it!
