Every year 150 or so critics rank what they consider to be the top jazz artists in 63 categories, and this is presented in the August issue of Downbeat magazine.

Sometimes Canadian jazz musicians are represented. This year I found 9 who I knew to have Canadian roots. I’m sure there are more but I don’t know that they are Canadian. If you find some I’ve missed, please advise me through my “Discovering Jazz” facebook page.

I play a track from seven Canadian artists, and with one of them, I even play two tracks. And, interestingly, 4 of the 7 musicians are female.
