Thousands of members of the global jazz community will descend upon Toronto over the next 24 hours, where the annual convention of the International Association of Jazz Educators (IAJE) is about to begin. But the weather report is ominous, with threats of wind and rain and maybe even snow.
We can't do anything about the meteorological conditions, but in the spirit of looking on the bright side we are sharing Alan Kurtz's celebration of Stormy Weather. Or, to be more precise, Alan Kurtz's celebration of his twelve favorite versions of the great jazz standard "Stormy Weather."
Jazz.com will be providing daily updates from IAJE, courtesy of our intrepid editor-on-the-prowl Tim Wilkins. So check back here later in the week for the highlights from Toronto.
