Jazz 1-wayI don't have much else to say this time, other than it's nice to see the Dave Rivello Ensemble back in the listings.  You'll find the next seven days of live jazz in and around Rochester below. Plus the usual stuff I say in all these posts, which follows...

Would you like to see a more vibrant jazz community for live jazz here in Rochester?  I'm trying to help build one here, so please give me a hand. I'd love it if you'd share this site.  Find out all the ways to get you some JazzRochester goodness by checking my post laying it out for you. I'd also like to call your attention to my pretty new sharing buttons that are floating on the left of your screen. Please share the blog on your favorite platform with those buttons, or share a particular post with the buttons at the bottom of the post. 

As always, let me know if any gigs below are no longer happening, if I got something wrong wrong, or if you have heard of something that's not in these listings so I can add it.

We've compiled these listings from information obtained from our own knowledge of the jazz scene in and around Rochester, the performing artists themselves and other sources. The aim is to give you a one-stop place to find all your live jazz in and around Rochester. Click on the links (underlined words or phrases) where available in the post for more information on the gig.  Only start times are listed, so visit or call the venue for more details (the websites for many of the venues are in the right panel). Check back as I will add any gigs I hear about after publication (look for the added image  graphic next to the listing). Lastly, please forgive me where these listings prove to be wrong, I rely on you, the venues and the artists to let me know when we've got bad information, so don't hesitate to let us know about such departures from reality by clicking on the Contact Us link above.
