The question I kept getting asked on Jazz Street ... What have been your favorites at this year's RIJF?
So, what did you think about the 7th Annual Rochester International Jazz Festival? Take the poll....

Yes, Virginia, there is jazz in Rochester after the RIJF....

You may be thinking...haven't we heard enough jazz?  There's always more music in Rochester and one of the great things about this town is that the RIJF is not the only time you can hear jazz in town.  Here are the listings for the next seven days.
