Live Shots: Sort of like after hours at XRIJF, but colder....

After the Grace Kelly gig, I dropped into Benedettos on Alexander in the city. The Bob Sneider Trio with Bob Sneider, Dan Vitale and Mike Melito later turned into a jam session, much like Bob's sessions at the jazz festival with a rotation of Eastman jazz students and other young players siting in (although no Jonas Kulhammar or, alas Grace Kelly (she and her band probably have a long drive back to NYC tonight ir tomorrow am i expect). Although they are clearly still learning, I'm always amazed at the quality of the students' playing.

Benedettos is trying out jazz at 10pm Friday-Saturday. Will need your support to keep it going, so check it out. Need more live jazz in the city....

Good night...

Jazz Around Town: An announcement from XRIJF and some jazz listings....

XRIJF logoYesterday, John Nugent and Marc Iacona announced 5 of the headliners for the 12th Edition of the Xerox Rochester International Jazz Festival: Willie Nelson & Family, David Byrne & St. Vincent, Bob James & David Sanborn with special guest Steve Gadd, Pink Martini, and Roger Hodgson (who, if you're asking, is the "Voice of Supertramp"). Yes, we all know that most of them are not "jazz" artists. Don't worry, there should be enough "real" jazz to go around.... I for one would love to hear David Byrne (major Talking Heads fan going way back) and Willie (by the way, he did just record an an album [affiliate link] with Wynton Marsalis....).

Exodus to Jazz returns with the Grace Kelly Quartet Saturday, January 26th at Hochstein

At the end of October, I let you know that Exodus to Jazz was going on a hiatus to regroup a bit, but that there were two ETJ shows that would definitely go on. The first of those is coming next weekend on Saturday, January 26th at Hochstein Performance Hall and it will be saxophonist (actually multi-instrumentalist...) Grace Kelly and her Quintet Quartet. 

GraceKelly2Grace Kelly is well known to Rochester audiences from her appearances at the Rochester International Jazz Festival in 2010 and 2011, moving from the Montage to Kilbourn Hall. Only 19 (or 20) and playing sax since the age of 9, Kelly is a prodigy who does a little bit of everything in her music. In addition to playing saxophone (alto, soprano and a bit of tenor) and other instruments with chops that players twice (and thrice) her age would envy, Kelly sings, writes, and arranges in a wide range embracing beyond jazz (although deeply rooted in it) into blues, funk, rock and contemporary styles. Her talent resulted in a number of opportunities to play with jazz legends like Lee Konitz, with whom she recorded Gracefullee in 2008 and Phil Woods, with whom she recorded the Man with the Hat album in 2011 (affiliate links). 

So here's the skinny on the concert on Saturday:

  • Where: Performance Hall, Hochstein School of Music, 50 N. Plymouth Ave., Rochester, NY.
  • Time: 8:00 pm, doors open at 7:00 pm. There will be two one-hour sets with 20-minute intermission.
  • Ticket Prices: Advance Sales: Patron- $40; Premium- $30; General Admission- $25. At the Door: Patron- $42; Premium- $32; General Admission- $27. 
  • Where to get em: Until the day of the show: At all Wegmans stores (Rochester, Buffalo, Syracuse); online at Brownpapertickets.com; and at Hochsteing beginning 7:00pm on the night of concert.

Here's Grace Kelly's Quintet with her arrangement of Summertime at the 2011 XRIJF performance in Kilbourn Hall:

 

And here's her Quintet live at the Rockport Music Jazz Festival in September of last year:

 

Come on folks, come out on Saturday and show your support for bringing such talent to Rochester to supplement the already rich supply of jazz talent! I'll be looking for you....

Jazz Around Town: It's not dead ... it's resting!

sax imageA little improvement in the listings this week, so maybe last week was an anomaly, although I heard from some of you that you're feeling the same tightening of jazz gigs around town.  

Nonetheless, there is quite a lot of new stuff down in the Heads Up area, so check that out.  I may even get  out and hear something over the next seven days if I can just beat this head cold....

Jazz Around Town: Where has all the jazz gone?

To compile these listings, sax imageI look to City's listings, a few sites of venues that regularly schedule jazz and other sources, including artists who contact us directly and let me know about their gigs. I'm beginning to see a pattern develop of fewer and fewer live jazz gigs around town listed in the sources I often turn to (and in those forwarded to me). It actually may just be this time of year, but City only had 21 listings for the next seven days (and some of those are repeating gigs that are listed every week).

I'm just sayin....Artists, just let me know about your gigs by Wednesday afternoon so that they get in the post and out to my nearly 500 subscribers (yep, 500 people who actually want to hear about jazz gigs in and around ROC, don't you want them to know about yours?).  So here's what I found for the next seven days:
