JazzYYC’s June Jazz Celebration 2014 was a great success. Thanks to the efforts of musicians, volunteers and the JazzYYC board,  we presented seven excellent shows featuring local and touring artists to large, appreciative audiences.  The Calgary Herald interviewed artistic director Kodi Hutchison and JazzYYC president Deb Rasmussen and called the event a Festival in everything but name.   Congratulations and thanks to all who helped make the event a success.
