Some listings from the Windy City . . . well I'm there, but this jazz is in Rochester

These listings are brought to you, with the help of the lovely Dianna, from Chicago where I'm at a conference for lawyer nerds. There's some good jazz here this weekend, including the SF Jazz Collective (I'm thinking its possible we may see them this summer...I don't know that they are for sure, but it just seems right). However, some of my favorite jazz haunts in the city seemingly have departed the mortal coil, including the Jazz Showcase, where I first saw (and wrote about) Mulgrew Miller and HotHouse, the dark remnants of which are a mere block from my hotel. Oh well, life is change....
