Remembering Eleanor Collins, Canada's First Lady of Jazz:


For this last episode of the In Concert Hall of Fame for 2023, Paolo honours Canada’s first lady of jazz: Eleanor Collins. Eleanor Collins is remarkable, both as a musician and as a person. In November, she celebrated her 104th birthday. Not long ago, Canada Post dedicated a stamp to Eleanor. And she’s a member of the Order of Canada. And yet, relatively few Canadians know about Eleanor and even fewer people have heard her amazing recordings. Get to know all about the remarkable Eleanor Collins on the In Concert Hall of Fame.
