Elvis Costello jazzes up Montreal
with musical homage

Hello! Canada

Exchanging his trademark horn-rimmed glasses for tinted shades and a fedora, a dapper Elvis Costello took to the stage at the Montreal International Jazz Festival stage on Tuesday to honour music legend Paul Simon.

Fortunately the rain held off on the eve of July 4 as thousands of cheering jazz enthusiasts filled the streets of downtown Montreal for the open-air highlight of the week-long festival.

Joining the London-born singer in renditions of a medley of Paul Simon classics were fellow crooners Colin James, Holly Cole and Leonard Cohen. Fifty-one-year-old Elvis, who recently announced that he and his sultry Canadian wife Diana Krall are expecting a baby together, contributed a soulful version of Peace Like A River to the proceedings.

The singer's new blues-era look was unveiled the previous week in his adopted home town of Vancouver, where he kicked off his new Canadian tour with R&B counterpart Allen Toussaint. Also on hand in Montreal, Allen joined Elvis in honouring Graceland singer Paul with a lively duet.
