Guelph Jazz Festival Reviewed

Henry Threadgill - Zooid

From The Santa Barbara Independent:

Those of us without the benefit of an NYC-adjacent address have to seize live encounters when and where we can. So, hearing that Threadgill and his current band Zooid was the featured guest at the Guelph Jazz Festival was the clincher for my wanting to get outta’ Dodge and get thee back to Guelph, Ontario, the lovely college town an hour’s drive from Toronto, and a portal into the outer jazz limits. Hear this: the Guelph Jazz Festival, which completed its 18th annual edition last weekend, is one of North America’s finest left-field and/or experimental jazz occasions.
