Although I'm taking some detours on the fourth evening of the Rochester International Jazz Festival, I'm beginning the night as planned with Hilario Duran at Max. Duran is more subdued, with a quieter brilliance than his fellow Cuban pianist who appeared last night. Roberto Occhipinti on bass in his trio is another highlight and will probably appear tomorrow with his brother Michael's Sicilian Jazz Project.
Changing plans as I have had a change in heart on hearing vocals tonight, so will sit out Tolstoy & McKelle (really, it's me... not you). Going to catch one of Trombone Shorty's shows as planned and Amy Lavere for something different in between.
