Jazz Around Town: Happy Holidays from Jazz@Rochester ... Hope Yule Be Boppin!

Yule Be Boppin coverSitting here by the fire, listening to some holiday jazz (including the album to the right), sipping some rye whiskey, and writing the post (well, OK, there is no fire...), trying to juice up some Christmas spirit (so far based mostly on the spirits, not spirit). Staying in ROC for Xmas and both me and the missus are working the holidays (she both days).  So hope you have a cool Yule....
