Jazz Around Town: The PGA edition....
Jazz Around Town: While some who play it are gone, jazz still lives in ROC

Jazz Around Town: We're on a staycation ... perhaps we'll go hear some jazz?

Jazz 1 WayI've often written these posts while visiting my father in Kansas. In a great turnaround, he and my step-mom Kay are visiting us here in Rochester. We took quite the tour of our fair city this afternoon. Paid our respects to Frederick Douglass and Susan B., had a flight at the Genesee Brewery tasting room (love that Cream Ale... really!) and walked out on the pier at Charlotte, with a white hot in Washington Square Park in the middle.

Well, here are the live gigs I found in and around Rochester over the next 7 days. Hope I can get out with my Dad to hear something:
