jazz this way sign

The prodigal jazz blogger has returned with a belly full of Chicago jazz and blues and a little R&R in Wichita. We seem to already be dwindling as we head toward our jazz in late June, so better start some XRIJF coverage soon.

By the way, have you liked a Jazz@Rochester Facebook page today? I share stuff there (and on Twitter) that doesn't get in here, so you might want to check it out....

Below you will find the next seven days in live jazz in and around Rochester. Listen amongst yourselves....
