Those with "[added]" or that are stricken, if any, were changes found after initial publication of the post. Check the venue sites or call for more information. I've compiled these from other sources, so please forgive me if there are any discrepancies with reality. Artists please feel free to let me know via email (link on left panel) if one of your gigs isn’t on here and I’ll try to add it to the post before the gig happens. Email subscribers should check back here to see if there has been an update or revision before you make decisions on jazz to see (subscribers won't get an update email or posting).

The Stucko's gig is a standing 6:30 - 8:30 for now. And Joe Chiappone is going to be joining them again this week. You should come out.
