This is my favorite time of year, the beginning of summer and the beginning of the Ottawa Jazz Festival.  I wanted to get this write-up done before I head west on the 417 highway to Ottawa.

I encountered a power-failure and my laptop’s battery was not charged,.   So now I’m in a bit of a rush to let you know about this awesome Jazz festival.  Let me just say that the Ottawa Jazz Festival is my favorite jazz fest.  The venue, Confederation Park is just about the most inviting park you will ever walk into.  The festival organizers are also the nicest people I have ever had the pleasure to work with….and of course the jam packed array of all-star musicians just makes this the perfect must see event.

I intend to follow-up this rather short write-up with something a bit more substantial tomorrow.
