The last few days of the 2013 TD Toronto Jazz Festival was a kind of a Daze. I was buzzing around like a bee all over the place. From The Great Hall, to the Main Stage at Nathan Philips Square, to the outdoor stages in the Distillery District, plus a few other pubs and bars inbetween. The last night of the festival I found myself completely spent at Ronnie Hayward’s 3rd Annual Birthday Jam @ Dominion on Queen. I was too exhausted to take any pix! Of course it was 3 in the morning though.
I was going to shoot the Boz Scaggs show but they wanted us to sign a ‘Rights-Grab’ form, so they would own the images. No thanks! Luckily, the opener was local favorite Paul James, who doesn’t have any misgivings about photos, and put on a great entertaining performance, as is usual for Paul, he never dissapoints.
On the final full day of the fest, I decided I must see how things where going at the Distillery District. They had two stages setup, one in a more relaxed outdoor patio setting, the Pure Spirits Patio and the other, the Trinity Stage, a more traditional performance bandshell.
Well, that’s about it for what I captured during this 2013 version of the Toronto Jazz Festival. Check out my previous posts for other pix and rambling’s from the festival. Thanks!
