A new look for Jazz@Rochester....
The "work" week begins and the jazz continues: My picks for June 13 of the XRIJF

Jazz Around Town: We are T-minus 10 (9?) days and counting to XRIJF...

While I was able to spruce up the digs here a little, I need to punch up the preview posts as I still have six nights of the Xerox Rochester International Jazz Fest to take a look at and decide on who I intend to hear (and help provide you with some guidance, should you wish to join me (figuratively, that is...). In the meantime, while I'm getting my act together, you can check out City Newspaper's 2011 Xerox Rochester International Jazz Festival Guide and short artist bios, the profiles and interviews they have assembled there in addition to other information.

Check out the "XRIJF on Twitter" button above right! Even if you're not on the 140 character diet, I am following a number of artists who will be playing during the festival and it can sometimes offer insights into their tours and other information you don't find elsewhere. For those of you who are on Twitter, I encourage you to add the #XRIJF hashtag to your posts and join the growing conversation about the XRIJF prior to (and during) the festival. There are tabs that will be scrolling the "tweets" for both, which you'll find by clicking on the button.
