Live from the Windy City . . . your Rochester jazz listings

Sorry I've been a bit sparse in this blog for the past few days. Usual stuff (busy life, etc), but mostly due to preparing to hang out in Chicago with a bunch of lawyer techno-geeks (much like myself) at the American Bar Association's Tech Show. I'm there now.
