Jazz@Rochester's picks for XRIJF Day Eight (June 18, 2010)
Jazz@Rochester's picks for last day of XRIJF (June 19, 2010)

Jazz Around Town: There is something else out there....

Although the Xerox Rochester Jazz Festival starts Friday and completely sucks the air out of the local jazz scene (one reason is that so many will be playing the festival itself), there is still live jazz elsewhere. It's a bit light, of course. This post and the listings post next week are usually works in progress for their useful lives as I'll often add gigs as I learn of them throughout the week. So check back often, especially fir after hours gigs going on outside of the jazz festival and the "official" after hours. One thing you won't find in these listings are XRIJF listings. Look at the panel in the right to find links to all of the posts where I put my "picks" for what they're worth to you. Here you'll find what else is going on out there ... or at least what I can learn about. If you know of anything else, please send me an email and I'll try to add it (conversely, if there's something up here that you know is off, let me know).
