Thursday at 9PM


The future of jazz is in the hands of emerging artists, who appear on Jazzology on Thursday nights at 9PM.

Hosted by Heather Bambrick on Thursdays at 9PM, Jazzology provides an opportunity for students to showcase their talents and accomplishments, and share their stories and love of music in a professional environment. These talented jazz students choose the music and the artists they wish to talk about, as well as some recordings of their own.

The program provides emerging artists with the opportunity to develop important skills: biography writing, media training, interviewing, public speaking, social media. For many who participate, it is their first chance to conduct a professional interview as an artist. It also gives participants a chance to have their original music played on the radio.

Since 2006, JAZZ.FM91 has presented over 180 selected jazz students from the University of Toronto, York University, Humber College, and Mohawk College. Since taking part in the program, many of these artists have gone on to pursue to successful careers as performers, composers, and educators. Many of the participants are featured in our “Where Are They Now?” series HERE.

For information about the Jazzology program, please contact Community Engagement & Education Manager Mark Micklethwaite at 416-595-0404 x229 or


This week we feature pianist Nick MacLean from the University of Toronto.

Composer, arranger, pianist, synthist and band leader, Toronto-based Nick Maclean is a musical force to be reckoned with. Nick is originally from Ottawa and in his late teens quickly established himself on the local jazz scene by playing in many of Ottawa's local jazz spots and by hosting one of the monthly Jazzworks jam sessions. Nick obtained his Bachelors of Music at Humber college where he studied with many of Canada's jazz greats including Bernie Senensky, Nancy Walker and Dave Restivo. He is currently pursuing his Masters in jazz performance at the University of Toronto.

Recently, Nick has spent much of his time writing and arranging. Experimenting with many different styles of music, Nick continually expands his palate and pushes his music in as many directions as he can. “I don't like to stay in one spot creatively speaking. I'm always looking for new things to try and different ways of approaching a tune.” Currently Nick predominantly writes for his funk-fusion project, Snaggle. Boasting an energetic in-your-face sound as well as a line up of killer musicians, Snaggle has been very active playing shows in the Toronto area as well as leading jazz improvisation workshops for high school music programs. Snaggle released their debut album in September 2013 and recently returned from a small tour of Ottawa, Kingston and Stratford.
