Live at The Cellar

Vancouver's Iconic Jazz Club and the Canadian Co-operative Jazz Scene in the 1950s and '60s

By Jago
In the 1950s and '60s, cooperative jazz clubs opened in response to new forms of jazz expression emerging after the war and a lack of performance spaces outside major urban centres. Operated by the musicians themselves, these hip new clubs created spaces where jazz musicians practised their art. Live at The Cellar looks at this unique period in the development of jazz in Canada. Centered on Vancouver's legendary Cellar club, it explores the ways in which these clubs functioned as sites for the performance and exploration of jazz as well as for countercultural expression. Jago combines original research with archival evidence, interviews, and photographs to shine a light on a period of astonishing musical activity that paved the way for Canada's vibrant jazz scene today.
