Title
Burgundy Jazz: Little Burgundy and the Story of Montreal Jazz
Abstract
A celebration of the Little Burgundy district's contribution to the story of jazz in Montreal. From the 1920s until the early 1950s Montreal had an international reputation as a glamorous wide open city with a lively nightlife and great jazz. The swinging clubs of Little Burgundy were an important part of that reputation. The author explores the textures of Montreal's jazz era through 125 rare jazz artifacts, including swizzle sticks and menus from legendary Montreal nightclubs, flapper dresses, porter uniforms, old LP vinyl records, cocktail shakers, and sheet music.
