    Some of my favorite artists every year at the Montreal Jazz Festival are the players and singers of the Montreal scene who rarely get to play below the 49th Parallel. I brought back new albums by some of Montreal's best.

    Playlist includes:
    Oliver Jones Trio - D for Doxas
    Susie Arioli - Can't We Be Friends
    Terez Montcalm - My Baby Just Cares for Me
    Streetnix - Powerhouse
    Amanda Tossoff - New
    Lorraine Desmarais - Big Band Romanza
    Lorraine Desmarais - Mont Royal Romance
    Oliver Jones - St Henri
