Holidazed? Some jazz over the next seven days is just the ticket ....

Wordle.netMerry Christmas from Jazz@Rochester! Just couldn't get a post out yesterday, what with the holiday and being out of town with family. Plus there was the near certainty that few of you are out looking for jazz on Christmas day, and even fewer of you were out playing it (at least for the public). I've tried to cull out the false positives where possible, but I suggest you look to the venue's site or call first before heading out to any of the gigs today. Surprisingly enough, not much for today, Christmas Day...
