I had a great time and heard some fantastic music ... but what do YOU think about XRIJF 2010?
Jazz Around Town: There's a lot of heat out there ....

Jazz Around Town: If you can fit it in ... that is

This time of year there is just so much going on that fitting in some jazz may be difficult. However, you might even find someone playing at the festival or party you're attending over the next seven days. If you can work it in, here is the jazz I've found around town over the next week.

Just a reminder that we'd love to know what you thought about this year's jazz festival if you came out for it. So click on the link to take the Jazz@Rochester 2010 XRIJF survey.
