Indoor ticketing: Meshell Ndegeocello. Monument-National. 8 pm

Meshell Ndegeocello couldn't always pierce her pigeon, so many of us love her. People have always tried to put her in the R&B box, but her latest album, 2018 Ventriloquism, emphasizes that she is too familiar to make it happen. I am. A cover album of songs from Sade's Smooth Operator to Tina Turner's Private Dancer in the 1980s, all of which are radical reinterprets of the incredible variety of German-born American artists.

When referring to Corinne Bailey Rae, the first reaction is usually: Where did she go? Often life and death get in the way (her first husband died of drug and alcohol related causes in 2008), and her self-titled debut and hit "Put Your Record On" make her new. Since 2006, she has released only two albums-Soul Star. I think the good news is that everything she did is great for those who appreciate the melodic, laid-back, old-fashioned soul.

  1. “The advantage of the jazz fest is that the pool from which we can ... find artists is almost infinite,” says Laurent Saulnier, VP of programming, pictured at Place des Festivals.

    The Montreal Jazz Festival is once again the "strongest symbol of summer" in the city

  2. This photo of a Montreal jazz festival crowd is dated June 30, 1984. Then as now, free outdoor concerts were an integral part of the festival, but in that era, the action was along St-Denis St., where there were three outdoor stages in the area between Sherbrooke and Ste-Catherine Sts.
