London premiere followed by a Q&A with the director!
Co-presented by the London Jazz Festival.
A JOURNEY IN JAZZ tells the story of the amazing Scotsman Jim Galloway, who adopted Canada as a young man and then carved out an international career as saxophonist and jazz impresario. Like Charlie Parker, he played with the great Jay McShann. He played with the awesome Count Basie veteran Buddy Tate. He co-founded the Toronto Jazz Festival and was its artistic director for decades. He was also an accomplished broadcaster and print journalist. He became Canada’s jazz ambassador, furthering the international reach of jazz, America’s greatest gift to the world.
