Jazz Around Town: Live jazz in and around Rochester

Spent too much time setting up a new computer to get much else done this week, so you're seeing back-to-back jazz listings posts. A new entry on the scene, Lemoncello, just down the street from next door to Bistro 135 in East Rochester. I'm told that they plan on having jazz regularly (they're certainly starting out that way).
