For more than 50 years, jazz and Massey Hall have formed the perfect pair. And every year that bond grows stronger, thanks to indelible performances by the likes of Wayne Shorter, Wynton Marsalis and new favourite Esperanza Spalding, who will make two much-anticipated appearances this season.

Brad Mehldau Trio
Saturday, April 26, 2014 at 8pm
Three is anything but a crowd for bandleader Brad Mehldau and his compatriots Larry Grenadier (on bass) and Jeff Ballard (on drums). Together since 2005, the trio always wows, whether performing original pieces (as on 2012’s Ode) or covers (Ode’s companion disc Where Do You Start).
