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....). 

Well, there's enough "real" jazz for you over the coming seven days in and around Rochester. New venue that might be a regular place to hear, too.  So here are the listings:
