Improvisations on blogging jazz . . . here in Rochester, New York
The 2007 Grammy Awards and all that jazz....

The sounds of jazz music over the next 7 days . . . right here in Rochester, NY

Jazz Music IllustrationWe don't have much in the way of jazz bars and venues here in Rochester. How can we blame the venues? Even the new Bistro 135 in East Rochester, which started out with dreams of jazz every night, apparently has already decided to scale back it's plans to Fridays and Saturdays. Nonetheless, we still have a lot of jazz to hear around town most days of the week. Check out these over the next seven days.

Those with "[added]", "[changed]" or that are stricken were changes found after initial publication of the post. Check the venue sites or call for more information. I've compiled these from other sources, so please forgive me if there are any discrepancies with reality. Artists please feel free to let me know via email (link on left panel) if one of your gigs isn’t on here and I’ll try to add it to the post before the gig happens. Email subscribers should check back here to see if there has been an update or revision before you make decisions on jazz to see (subscribers won't get an update email or posting).
