Cobblestone Jazz Montreal QC May 30 to June 4

Featuring (and dominated by) Mathew Jonson, Cobblestone Jazz closed out the show with a wildly diverse set that spanned pretty much everything you could throw at a dance floor, from minimal and trendy trance to acid jazz to (briefly) fully-fledged big-breakdown progressive house à la John Digweed circa 2000. What was surprising — considering how difficult diversity is to pull off for most acts — was that most of this was actually pretty good. While Mathew did enough rock star posing to make one think, at times, that his biggest fan is probably himself, the full group nonetheless kept things moving where it counts — on the dance floor.
