Most people in Montreal (as I suspect most Northern cities) have a love and hate relationship with winter. We hate the fact that it’s cold, but mostly that it last 5 months. One thing we do love however, is the first few snowfalls of each year.
I put together a selection specifically for a quiet day in a beautiful snow storm. It features 16 hand-picked Jazz songs ranging from the 60’s to 70’s, all of which have always reminded me of that winter vibe.
