Exodus to Jazz press release on the change in venue

ExodusToJazz1

In case you aren't on the Exodus to Jazz mailing list, I thought I'd share their press release on their recent decision to change the venue for upcoming Exodus to Jazz shows from The Penthouse at One East Avenue to Anthology.  Here's the release:

Hello Friends of ETJ,

Exodus To Jazz is pleased about relocating to Anthology; this exciting venue offers considerable flexibility in terms of the groups being considered for concerts following Saturday's Cabo Frio Tribute to "Earth, Wind & Fire" and "Anita Baker".

In addition to the Cabo Frio concert, several groups soon to be announced typically draw audiences larger then The Penthouse can comfortably accommodate without requiring audience "turnover" during intermission. This "turnover" would have compromised the interactions between patrons, musicians and the Friends of ETJ volunteers that are highly valued by everyone.

In addition featuring vocalist Becca Feder on several tunes, the Cabo Frio concert will open with vocalist and ukulele player Cammy Enaharo. We plan to present Rochester's amazing locally-based talent as opening performers for all future concerts.

Thank You for the positive feedback you have given us. The Friends of ETJ volunteers and I look forward to welcoming you to Exodus To Jazz at Anthology. Click if you still need to purchase your tickets; if tickets remain available, they can be purchased at the Anthology box office when the doors open at 6 pm Saturday.

If you have any questions, send a text message to (585) 733-7685 or an email to jose@exodustojazz.com.

Keep Swinging!
Jose

An emphatic NO!!!! (It has seemed "around the corner" for WAY too long.)  But as usual there is some live jazz out there to heat you up.  

By the way, Jazz 90.1 is giving you until June 3rd to prove you are the biggest jazz fan in ROC.  Get the deets here about the contest and the prizes.  While I'm a pretty big jazz fan, I'm going to let others grab the limelight ...

Exodus to Jazz has returned to Rochester and is bringing a new series of live jazz

Exodus to Jazz at the Penthouse at One East Ave logo

NOTE: Exodus to Jazz has recently announced a change in venue for upcoming ETJ concerts from The Penthouse at One East Avenue to Anthology.  Watch the upcoming events and listings posts for upcoming shows.

Exodus to Jazz, the jazz series that brings musicians to Rochester who usually play the clubs in the Village and other venues in NYC, has returned to Rochester and released a lineup for its 2018 Season.  The teaser show for the series was last month with Johnny O’Neal on February 17th. For those familiar with ETJ, most of the lineup will be familiar favorites from prior seasons.  The Exodus to Jazz series has moved to a great new venue, The Penthouse at One East Avenue, which has become a increasingly popular venue for music. Plus, it is a penthouse and has great views and, after it gets warm (will it ever?), it will be even better. But back to the music... Here’s the lineup:

  • The Gabriel Alegria Afro-Peruvian Sextet (Saturday, March 31st). The Sextet was formed in January 2005 and returns to Rochester for their fourth Exodus To Jazz engagement. This band is fun.  The band played last year at the XRIJF and, as heard on the street, gained more fans there as well.  ​(Buy a ticket)
  • The Helen Sung Trio (Saturday, April 21st). Helen Sung returns to the Exodus To Jazz stage after an absence of more than three years. She is a monster on the piano, showing her prowess developed in both the jazz and classical worlds.  Sung always brings a great band with her as well. (Buy a ticket)
  • The Sylvia Cuenca Latin Quintet (Saturday, May 5th). The Sylvia Cuenca Latin Quintet will fuel a Cinco de Mayo celebration with a presentation of fiery Latin themes mixed with up-tempo straight-ahead jazz. A long time member of the late Clark Terry’s band, Sylvia is very dynamic drummer, brings great musicians with her. I look forward to hearing her again as the last time was at ETJ in 2006 when it was in the VENU Resto Lounge on St. Paul (she appeared again at ETJ with Joe Locke in October 2008, but unfortunately I think I was out of town). (Buy a ticket)
  • Cabo Frio Tribute to Earth, Wind & Fire and Anita Baker (Saturday, May 19th). Another Rochester music jewel, led by founder and original member Curtis Kendrick, Cabo Frio has promised, get out of your seats tribute to Earth, Wind & Fire and Anita Baker with arrangements by Kendrick. (Buy a ticket)
  • Paradigm Shift with Special Guest JD Allen (Saturday, July 21st). Rochester-based Paradigm Shift fills clubs in Buffalo, Boston, Germany, Japan and other countries in addition to gigs in its hometown. Led by guitarist Melvin Henderson, the trio includes cofounder/organist Gerry Youngman and drummer Sean Jefferson. Paradigm Shift creates a contagious “funky jazz" rooted in the jazz, gospel and R&B traditions. The addition of top shelf saxophonist JD Allen will be a unique experience, even if you have heard the Shift before. (Buy a ticket)

The set up for the rest of the series will be quite a bit different from the first concert with Johnny O'Neal.  A ticket will get you in for two sets of music.  For all of the shows, the doors will open at 6:00 pm, with the concert starting at 7:00. There will be an intermission at 8:00 pm, with the second set starting at 8:30 and ending at 9:30 pm.  The arrangement of the seats will change too, with the stage along the windows so everyone will be closer to the action whether they are at tables or in general admission seats.

Here are the deets. The Penthouse is found at One East Avenue in the city (go figure from the name....). You can park nearby in a number of parking garages, surface lots and metered spots within walking distance (and parking on the street is free on weekends). Individual pre-purchased tickets are:

  • General Admission $25
  • High Top Tables (in back) $35
  • Tables (closest to stage) $45

Five dollars will be added to tickets purchased at the door, if available.

And it begins again ... Jazz in June and for now ... Jazz in ROC, March 22nd through 28th

XRIJF 2018 presserYesterday, I went to the press conference for the announcement of the lineup for the 2018 Xerox Rochester International Jazz Festival.  Others in the mainstream media have covered the announcement well, including live streams by several.  As I'm not a newspaper or other news outlet, I don't feel a particular need to announce it here  on that day (I did on Twitter and Facebook). Our work on the festival starts after the announcement. Look for more here soon as I parse through the lineup.  My initial thoughts are that there are a lot of opportunities to see some great jazz from artists I know and a host of other interesting artists who I don't. That's what I hope for ... that's what XRIJF usually delivers.  For now, here's the poster and the artist lineup by date.

Unfortunately, those  venues and artists featuring blues and other genres of music who used to send gig info to WGMC have not provided the same to me.  For now, I have removed the separate listings that Jazz 90.1 used to include on their Club Calendar.  I can add it back, but need help.

So back to your regularly scheduled listings... I collect as much of the live jazz in and around Rochester as I can find so you don't have to do it yourself ... right here, every Wednesday in JazzRochester. I really need your help to grow a more vibrant community for live jazz here in Rochester by sharing this post or this site with those you know who love live jazz.  Share with the buttons! Follow us on Twitter, Facebook or Instagram! Sign up to receive our posts via email (there's a link at the top of the site).

Welcome WGMC'ers to our comprehensive listings of ... live jazz in Rochester, NY, February 15-21 (now with more...)

b&w jazz sign

This is the first post after WGMC Jazz 90.1 and JazzRochester launched a partnership where their Club Calendar is now a direct link to JazzRochester.  For new visitors from Jazz 90.1, here's the deal.  JazzRochester, as implied by its name, has for more than a decade published these weekly listings focused on live jazz in the city and surrounding area (plus some selected acts appearing in and near Buffalo, the Finger Lakes, Ithaca and Syracuse).  WGMC, however, also included some other types of music in its Club Calendar--blues and some roots music.  As I don't want to leave those Jazz 90.1 patrons in the dark, I'll work to add listings for those as well. They'll be in a separate section you'll see below. Please bear with me as we adjust to that new area and note that for now I cannot be as comprehensive in those areas as I am for the live jazz in the area.  I'm looking forward to our partnership with Jazz 90.1. When you're ready to go back to Jazz 90.1 site, just click on their logo in the right panel.

I found out that many of the items that I had deleted had returned to the listings post.  I was focused elsewhere apparently and didn't notice.  I think I've caught them all below and hang my head in shame (at least all of them are in the future...).  Thanks, Tom!

XRIJF 2017: A chance to hear the music you can hear the other 356 days of the year…

XRIJF logo As JazzRochester’s main focus is the live jazz you can hear in and around Rochester during the other 356 days of the year, I always provide a separate post that lets you know the local jazz musicians and bands who will be heard at the XRIJF, bands from the University of Rochester's Eastman School of Music, and the great local high school bands playing early in the evening at the City of Rochester Stage on Jazz Street.

During the festival, I tend to focus on those artists coming from out of town, taking the opportunity to hear new sounds that won’t likely be here in Rochester otherwise. That doesn’t meant that I don’t think that the great local jazz musicians are not worthy of your attention.  Here they are:
