The Montreal International Jazz Festival has just concluded its 38th year. I've been fortunate to have attended more than 30 of them and this year ranked among the best. I've covered the event as a photographer for All About Jazz since 2011. The festival is a total music immersion experience presenting some 600 concerts over the course of 11 days. It can be overwhelming and exhausting, but more often than not it is incredibly exhilarating. Some of the highlights of this year include concerts by the The Bad Plus, Danilo Pérez, Jack DeJohnette and Hudson, Charles Lloyd, Bill Frisell, Joshua Redman, and Ravi Coltrane. Some of the most memorable concerts featured local artists including John Roney, Joe Sullivan and Yannick Rieu. John Kelman and Mark Sullivan have written excellent in-depth reviews of the concerts at this years fest. Here are some of the photos taken across several performances.
