But wait ... there's more! Deadline extended on the Rochester Jazz Start contest
Jazz Around Town: Live (jazz) from Kansas....

Jazz Around Town: Listen amongst yourselves.... I'm leavin on a jet plane

Going to help the parental units move starting next week, so will be out of town for awhile. But that has never stopped me from doing the Wednesday post, so don't fret. You'll find it here, although I cannot promise when (Internet may be spotty where I'm going).

A shout out to two Eastman School of Music jazz guitarists, senior Graham Keir and freshman Gabriel Condon (who is a past recipient of the Rochester International Jazz Festival/Eastman Scholarship) as it was just announced that they received DownBeat honors in the magazine’s 33rd annual student music awards issue, which is due on the stands May 18th. Congratulations, guys...

Heads Up ... Look for these Jazz Gigs in the Future

We've compiled these listings from information obtained from the performing artists themselves and other sources. The aim is to give you a one stop place to find all your jazz in Rochester. Only start times are listed, visit or call the venue for more details (the sites for many are in the right panel). Please forgive me for any discrepancies with reality and feel free to let me know what the problem is, and I'll get the corrections up on the site as soon as possible (click on the "Send an email to Jazz@Rochester" link). If you go out to hear a performance listed here, feel free to drop a comment to this post about how it went. I want to hear from you!
