We've compiled these listings from information obtained from the performing artists themselves and other sources. The aim is to give you a one stop place to find all your jazz in Rochester. Please forgive me for any discrepancies with reality and feel free to let me know what the problem is, and I'll get the corrections up on the site as soon as possible (click on the "Send an email to Jazz@Rochester" link). If you go out to hear a performance listed here, feel free to drop a comment to this post about how it went. I want to hear from you!

The starting date for the 14 Fridays at Village Gate has been pushed back to June 5.
FOOTNOTE is pleased to be opening the series at that time! Of course, if you can't wait, you can find us at Pane Vino on Saturday May 30. Better yet, do both. Thanks!
