A bunch of kids with weird electronic instruments (they had an electric Celtic harp for goodness sake) took the main stage at the sedate little downtown Oakville Jazz Festival and burned down the house. People’s hair burst in flames. Nearby buildings melted in the heat. And the over-the-hill (I’m one) audience of ageing jazz lovers got a musical transfusion that may well have reminded them of their much longer days.
Dr. Draw and his band are not to be missed. Keep your cardiologist on call and go see Dr. Draw.
And one word to the Oakville Jazz Festival organizers – Brilliant!
