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 and from the artists themselves, so please forgive me if there are any discrepancies with reality and feel free to let me know if something is wrong and I'll get the change up on the site as soon as possible. Email subscribers should check back here to see if there has been an update or revision before you make decisions on going out to see jazz.
