Jazz Around Town: Still digesting, but it's Wednesday and time for some jazz listings....
Live Shots: Mambo Kings play you songs of summer...

Jazz Around Town: Wrap up post on XRIJF? Not gonna happen! We're back with listings, though....

OK, I've given up on the wrap up post for the 2010 XRIJF. Too much on the plate, so I'm going to do something better. Soon I'll put up a link to a short survey so we can hear what YOU think. I'll add my 2 cents at some point, but I think it's best I just move on. You probably don't lose much sleep not knowing what I think about the jazz festival anyway...

Until then, here are some listings for you for live jazz in and around Rochester for the next seven days. Enjoy your July 4th Holiday!
