Live shot: Jeremy Pelt Quintet @ Exodus to Jazz in Rochester, NY
Riffing the Jazz Links: A few random destinations from the world wide web

Jazz Around Town: You're not going to let a little snow keep from hearing some music... this is Rochester, NY!

With 6-12" of the white stuff or more in the offing, some may be thinking about hunkering down. We've had it easy this year so far, right? So here are the listings for live jazz in and around Rochester for the next seven days. Get on your boots, shovel your way out of the driveway, and get out to see something if you can.

As my iPhone takes pretty lousy pictures, I had to "jazz" up today's photo (of trumpeter Jeremy Pelt at the Sunday Exodus to Jazz gig) with a bit of color, etc. in Photoshop Mobile.
