Montreal Jazz Festival Sunday: Duke Ellington Orchestra vs. Count Basie Orchestra
One for the Road

Montreal's Weekends du Monde

Of course, the minute I get to Parc Jean-Drapeau for Piknic Electronik, I walk straight into a huge, free world cultural festival, Week-ends du Monde, with six stages presenting music from Africa, Asia, Latin America, and all points in between. My favorite so far is Place des Traditions, which has traditional Quebec music that sounds a lot like Irish jigs and reels. With families all around and the sun going down on this crystal-clear day, its impossible not to have a smile on your face.
