Hot! Montreal International Jazz Festival / Montreal, Canada

A visit to Canada should definitely include a stop in Montreal. It is one of the most beautiful cities in the country…and should be on everyone’s travel list of “must-see” cities to visit. Breathtaking views, beautiful landscapes, and historic sites are everywhere. Montreal is the largest city in the Canadian province of Quebec, and the second largest city in Canada. It is one of the largest French-speaking cities in the world, though most of its inhabitants also speak English. It’s a culturally diverse and cosmopolitan city with a population of over two million people. The truly international flavor here is evident in the many fine restaurants, with cuisine from around the world, and in the self-contained ethnic communities that are scattered around the city. An arts plaza in the center of Montreal is the home of many important events that take place in the city, including the world famous Montreal International Jazz Festival.

Montreal has earned itself the right to be called a major jazz destination thanks to the storied history of this festival. Over the years, the Montreal International Jazz Festival has featured some of the best and most respected musicians in jazz. It is now one of the most prestigious jazz festivals in the world and every year attracts fans from around the globe. For true jazz connoisseurs, a trip to Montreal and the Montreal Jazz Festival is a must!

“Studio Jams is, if not the best, certainly one of the best shows on television. It’s great to see how different people from different styles of music get together to make fantastic music. Thanks for the passion, inspiration, imagination, and the experience.”
