The House that Bop Built




Yes a documentary made by Colette Slevinsky - a longtime volunteer and now filmmaker at the Yardbird...read more about it below..so exciting. I was part of that group that kept live jazz going strong in Edmonton...so proud. I had some great experiences there - never to be repeated plus I also met my husband through the Edmonton Jazz Society and many friends - priceless

It had its' premiere on Sunday night as a fundraising effort for the Global Visions film festival. It features such greats as Tommy Banks, P.J. Perry and jazz fan, board member, leader, inspiration and volunteer supreme - the sadly departed Craig Magill.
