Festival International de Jazz de Montreal presents

Vic Vogel and the Jazz Big Band

An important figure on the Quebec jazz scene, Vic Vogel holds the record for Festival visits, and has performed in every conceivable configuration—from trio to Big Band to nonet—and with a most remarkable array of collaborators including Mel Tormé, Maynard Ferguson, Oliver Jones and Karen Young. Now, our indefatigable Montreal pianist and bandleader honours us with a final victory-lap performance. Winner of the 1992 Oscar Peterson Award, Vic Vogel returns to throw a party for himself—and everyone!—accompanied by a crew of special guests, just in time to celebrate his 80th birthday!

Jazz Festival LogoRanked as the world’s largest jazz festival by Guinness World Records, the Festival International de Jazz de Montréal has been synonymous with a passion for music for over three decades. Every year, the metropolis welcomes global music fans to 10 days of jazz-centric celebration, where fans of all types of jazz-related music rub shoulders with aficionados of the genre in its purest form. The Festival hosts some 30 countries, 3,000 musicians and public entertainers, 1,000 concerts and activities—two-thirds of them free – in 15 concert halls and on 8 outdoor stages, welcoming more than 2 million visitors to the city, from noon to midnight! And it all happens in the heart of Montreal’s downtown core, in an area off-limits to car traffic! There’s no doubt – Montreal is the heartbeat of Planet Jazz!
