Jim Galloway

Jim Galloway (born James Braidie Galloway in Kilwinning, Ayrshire, Scotland) was a jazz clarinet and saxophone player. He based his career in Canada since emigrating in the mid-1960s. He began an ensemble, the Wee Big Band, in the late 1970s. One of his albums, Walking On Air, was nominated for Best Jazz Album at the Juno Awards of 1980. He was the artistic director of the Toronto Jazz Festival from 1987 to 2009. In 2002 he was made a Chevalier of the French Ordre des Arts et des Lettres. His musical performances continue to be listed on the Toronto Jazz Festival website. I've usually seen him with his little soprano saxophone, which he played with love and coaxed out wonderful lyrical melodies. He was really a leader and a shining star since he arrive from Scotland in the 60's. A humble star, from what I could observe!! Jim Galloway died in Toronto 30. Dec 2014

According to the Smithsonian Institution's Smithsonian Jazz website, there are “celebrations in all 50 states and 40 countries." If I'm not mistaken, New Mexico is one of those 50 states, and no one here ...

Jim Galloway: Echoes of Swing

Read "Echoes of Swing" reviewed by Jack Bowers

There has been much discussion recently at the Kentonia (fans of Stan Kenton) web site about swing—what it is (and isn’t), how one can identify and/or define it, does it mean the same thing to different people, and so on. May I suggest that those who’ve not yet gotten their hands around the topic pick up ...

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
