Exodus to Jazz continues with Johnny O'Neal on Friday
Jazz in the short term ... some special gigs coming up soon

Jazz Around Town: It may be getting colder, but the hot jazz out there will keep you warm...

As we slide into the winter months, try to keep the heat up with some live jazz music at the restaurants and clubs in and around Rochester. It's kind of interesting. The "wordle" on the right is from last year, same week, and the words are not too dissimilar from what they would be if I had created it tonight!

Are you on Facebook? Have you checked out Jazz@Rochester's page there? Hoping that readers will use it to have discussions about jazz in Rochester. I try to send some stuff that way as well.
