A reprise, some wild flowers and Sacred Ground . . . Day 6 of the 2008 Rochester Jazz Festival
Sliding into the last weekend, we slow down somewhat for a night on Day 7 of the RIJF

Do you think they stop playing while the RIJF is on? Of course not, so here are the jazz listings for the next 7 days!

So you don't want to stop listening to jazz, but you want to quit plunking down the $ for Club Pass venues and beer (well, you'll still have to pay for the beer)...what do you do? You head to one of the fine establishments across the Rochester metro area that will be presenting jazz (most of which do so during the rest of the year). There's even another jazz festival on Thursday and Friday in Webster. This set of listings does not include those associated with the Rochester Jazz Festival, which you can find, of course on the RIJF website. Sorry it's a bit late, but I'm kinda busy if you can believe it....
