A while ago I posted a piece on the Juno awards. It is no secret that there is a disenfranchised feeling in the west surrounding the awards – and I wrote to that end in my post (you can find it in the archives). However – I was wrong about a few very important points, and am happy to be corrected – Phil Dwyer is mentioned in the article as a deserving candidate and winner of the award. Where I made a misstep was in saying his project was “decidedly Toronto”. He has commented on the blog post and it turns out I am lame at research (to my defense – I bought the album from itunes and credits are not mentioned). I encourage you to check out his comments – I still hold by my statement that jazz in Canada is missing an important element – the future – comments anyone?
