the 2012 Ottawa NuJazz Festival featuring:

Thursday, Nov 22 @ Mercury Lounge
NuJazz Launch Party feat. Jazz Amnesty Sound System Presented by Hub Ottawa | $10 general / $5 for Hub Members Doors at 10pm |www.hubottawa.org


The Jazz Amnesty Sound System (or J.A.S.S.) is run by Montreal djs Andy Williams & sweet daddy luv. With an honest admiration, appreciation and awe for the dedication and skills of its honored players, these veteran selectors delve deep into the rich history of jazz in an attempt to weave its story. There is the idea of what 'jazz' is that follows it through the changes over the years. From its humble beginnings at the mouth of the Mississippi, through big band, swing, bop, cool, avant-garde, dancefloor, free, fusion, funk, electronic and out into the world where jazz has been assimilated and combined with many non-western musical styles. The Jazz Amnesty Sound System will be playing the classics that helped define all these jazz sub-genres as well as prime examples of sheer beauty created by artists that often get overlooked. If you dig jazz you'll dig J.A.S.S.

Organizer

Mercury Lounge


The Mercury Lounge has been a Mecca for the arts in Canada's capital city of Ottawa, since its inception in November 1996. Its programming purports a musical vision steeped in the traditions of jazz and yet forward in its approach to encompass all its many derivatives. Through its dynamic programming, the Mercury Lounge has successfully connected the dots, uniting jazz with contemporary electronic break beat culture. Within its walls the very philosophy of jazz, that of change, abounds. It serves not only as a club, and live venue, but also for poetry readings, dance performances and art gallery.
