This episode:

Toronto Bassist Mike Downes joins Mark Wigmore in-studio for a candid conversation on his long musical path, his commitment to jazz education, notes on his new album Root Structure, and his memories of his participation of Soulpepper Theatre's summer sojourn to New York City.

On Garvia Bailey's Giant Steps, a look into the mind and music of Jason Moran.

The Toronto International Jazz Festival comes to a close this weekend, and Mark has a few final thoughts on the best of the fest.

And Raymond Boisjoly is a Haida/Quebecois visual artist and the only Canadian in-line to win one of the largest photography prizes on the planet: The $50,000 AGO/AIMIA Photography Prize. Mark speaks with Raymond from the Prize Exhibition at the Art Gallery of Ontario.

All that, and beautiful jazz for a Sunday morning.
