Jazz venues come and go, but the players remain.... The coming week of jazz in Rochester

Jazz sign image

Going to try to get out for the two Bop Shop gigs and to the final gig at Pomodoro's on University in ROC.  After this week, it appears that the folks at Pomodoro's have decided to exit the live jazz scene in ROC (see the "End of the Era" show on Saturday with Paradigm Shift, who have played there many times). That is of course disappointing news as I know a number of our local groups have loved playing there, but nevertheless thanks to them for supporting live jazz for as long as they have. Is this a trend?  Don't know as there are also new venues hitting the scene too (see Spectrum Creative Arts on Friday).
