The Market Gallery showcases the evolution of Toronto's jazz scene in the exhibit "Notes in the Night: The History of Toronto Jazz Clubs Since 1946", on now until June 23.

Guest curated by jazz historian Ralph Coram, the exhibit profiles Toronto's Jazz venues using photographs, menus, advertising, record sleeves, posters, correspondence and interviews. It also features materials from the collections of music-scene personalities like Dave Caplan, Jim Galloway, Archie Alleyne and the CODA Magazine papers. Taped interviews with jazz greats Archie Alleyne, Molly Johnson and Don Vickery focus on the experiences of performers and the social and political dynamics of Toronto's scene.

The legacy of the jazz musicians who performed in long-running venues like the Colonial Tavern, the Town Tavern, Bourbon Street and George’s Spaghetti House helped establish and define Toronto’s identity as a music city.

Private collectors and photographers have provided artifacts from their collections for this exhibit. The Ontario Government LLBO tavern files supplied the documentary source for those clubs that had liquor licenses.

The Market Gallery, one of 10 Toronto History Museums operated by the City, presents exhibitions dedicated to Toronto’s art, culture and history and offers educational programs for school groups and adults. For additional exhibit information, please visit us online
