Now Playing:


This Sunday from 8-9 a.m., it’s another edition of Arts Toronto with your host Mark Wigmore on Jazz FM91

This episode:

Adam Gopnik is best known for his 30 years as an essayist with The New Yorker magazine. For millions of avid culture vultures, politicos, foodies, travel-lovers and relationship examiners, his way with words is a jungle gym of prose that delights, challenges, informs and entertains. He’s also a prolific author with nearly a dozen books to his name. He is the best-selling author of Paris to the Moon and Through the Children's Gate, both well loved personal accounts that not only show off his prowess as an insightful writer, but also allow the reader to live vicariously through his unique experiences. His latest is At the Strangers' Gate: Arrivals in New York, a memoir that tracks his monumental move from Montreal to Manhattan in 1980, alongside his soon-to-be-wife, Martha. It follows the triumphs and foibles of the classic pilgrimage that dreamers, thinkers and artists take to the big apple to explore what they were capable of.And it paints a portrait of New York that no longer exists, and captures the city's transformation into what it is today. Adam Gopnik joins Mark Wigmore in the Jazz FM91 studios for a sprawling conversation about jazz, The New Yorker and his new book. 

And, Juno Award-winning jazz vocalist Sophie Milman speaks to Good Morning Toronto's Garvia Bailey about her upcoming GTA performances in Markham and Burlington, her Soulpepper sojourn to New York city, and why she's exciting to be a part of the Jazz FM91 International Jazz Safari to Cuba this January.

All that, event updates, and beautiful jazz for a Sunday morning.
