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

This episode:

A trip northwest thru Toronto, past Brampton and Caledon, and ending at Hockley Valley to visit the set of the hit CBC/POP Network sitcom, Schitt’s Creek. Along with sightings of the Schitt’s Creek Motel and the clunker car owned by the Rose family, Mark gets a look at the bucolic surroundings, meets the crew, takes a tour of the set, and interviews members of the cast including Eugene Levy, Annie Murphy, Emily Hampshire and Dan Levy. Season 4 of Schitt's Creek premieres on Tuesday.

And, over the last 3 decades, Kurt Elling has been one of the most celebrated jazz vocalists on the world stage. Since 1995, he has released a dozen recordings which have garnered 12 Grammy nominations and a win for 2009’s Dedicated to You. His latest solo effort is The Beautiful Day, Kurt Elling Sings Christmas. In 2017, Kurt was featured on two exciting recordings, Brian Byrne’s GoldenHair and The Passion of Charlie Parker. On Wednesday, January 17th he will take the Koerner Hall Stage as part of the rescheduled concert, Humber at 50: A Celebration through Music. Kurt Elling speaks to Mark Wigmore from his home in New York City.

All that, Garvia Bailey's 'Giant Steps', and beautiful jazz for a Sunday morning.
