Jazz Around Town: Some of the "other" jazz going on around Rochester

As the Xerox Rochester International Jazz Festival starts building momentum toward it's finale on Saturday has, of course, sucked most of the air out of the live jazz scene. There are quite a few of our local jazz folks playing dates at the festival and I've seen more than a few walking around and in the venues. Here is the "non-XRIJF" live jazz going on around Rochester through next Wednesday if you'd like to check it out.
