Alain Simard founder of the Montreal Jazz Festival has always the time to read all the reports about this wonderful event. In fact he is everywhere during the festival, reading the journalist’s articles, presenting the artists, and encouraging his team. Undeniably this 30th anniversary was an incredible success despite of the rain. Thanks a lot to the Spectra team, you guys, did a great job.
