    At the WBGO gallery reception for artist Chris Osborne, there were great friends, great performances, and a great treat in a surprise visit from the artist's friend...Tony Bennett!

    Mr. Bennett said a few words, and Ms. Osborne presented everyone in attendance with a gift of one her posters. Her art work features jazz and blues legends with the classic automobiles of their era.

    Chris Osborne's paintings will hang in the WBGO gallery until the end of July, then Hank O'Neals photos will go up.

    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
