Teen prodigy Avery Raquel is a big reason why Canada is a world leader of jazz music. One of the cool things about the genre is that it doesn’t matter how old you are; singers and musicians of all ages, from junior to senior, are welcome in the spotlight. Avery released an astonishingly good vocal jazz album of covers in early 2016 called Life Lessons which matches her singing talent with very professional and gorgeous arrangements.
