Jazz Around Town: Prelude to a bird (but not Bird)...
Bob Brookmeyer to blow out some candles (with his trombone) around Rochester next week

Jazz Around Town: Although we start out slow (a pause to eat turkey?), the jazz continues

Sending you your Rochester jazz listings this week from somewhere in the Flint Hills east of Wichita, Kansas (OK, here). No jazz here, but hope to catch some when I return after the holiday. Hope you and yours have a great "Turkey Day"!
