Chance to hear jazz at an unusual time and place. Today outside my office in Aqueduct Park off Main at the Main Street bridge the company I work for, Thomson Reuters, co-sponsors a series of music concerts Wednesday noons during the summer with the city. Today's fare was none other than the Mike Melito Quartet pictured here, with Mike, Bob Sneider, Dan Vitale and Mike DiMartino.  Great break in the day! Here's the live jazz for the next seven days in and around Rochester:
