The good Dr. Lonnie Smith at Exodus to Jazz . . . Some of the live jazz from last year in Rochester
Our man Crane gets his props . . . .

Did you think I forgot? I almost did . . . Here are your jazz listings, Rochester

So, I felt so good about posting that video and that I was "done" for the night and then . . . I remembered . . . it's Wednesday. If it's Wednesday, it must be time for Jazz@Rochester listings (except for last week, when it was Thursday).

I tried to draw as much from as many sources I had, but I have a sinking feeling there is some missing gigs on these listings. Just like me, I'm sure that many were too busy (or just out of town) and some of their gigs didn't get in the usual places.  Check back later as I'll add things that come up after I post this.

Those with "[added]" or that are stricken, if any, are changes or new gigs 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).
