We bet when rapper Snoop Dogg was just coming up amid so much drama in the LBC, he never planned on one day headlining the world’s largest jazz festival. For one thing, it’s kinda hard being Snoop J-A-double-zee. And yet the Doggfather will do just that at Métropolis this Friday, July 4, as part of the 35th Festival International de Jazz de Montréal. But chill to the next episode, hepcats, while you muthaf[PARENTAL ADVISORY]ers bounce to this: There’s still plenty of actual jazz at the Montréal jazz fest, including the likes of Christian McBride, Dianne Reeves, Ginger Baker, Keith Jarrett, Terence Blanchard and Tony Bennett, to name handful of the hundreds of performers of all genres, jazz and otherwise, who will play the fest. The Montréal jazz fest began last week and runs through Sunday, July 6. For more, visit montrealjazzfest.com.
