"Barrie has a remarkably attentive jazz scene at Fitzy's (Crab
-- cats who clap for solos and recognize tunes... it was a pleasure
play there. I always get a little apprehensive the farther out of
urban centres I wander (figuring I'm always at risk of being
strung up if
the music's too big city weird) --

shout out needs
to go out to Robin Munro, who runs the Barrie jazz fest,

and has done so
much for jazz education in that region.
In short -- YAY BARRIE!"
