Riffing the Links: The return (again) of riffing off some jazz links
Jazz Around Town: Live jazz in and around Rochester

Jazz Around Town: Hot and cold ... it's that time of year

As we go up and down in temperature, we have ups and downs in the amount of live jazz around town. Although not all jazz, get out Saturday to support Record Store Day and buy some CDs (or vinyl) at your local independent record emporium like The Bop Shop or the Record Archive. Both are scheduled to have live music: Bop Shop and Record Archive., although check with the Record Archive before going as I heard the expected bad weather this weekend was putting a damper on their plans. Get out and support these Rochester institutions and the unique music they support in town.
