Jazz Around Town: Missing Rochester and its music, but you don't have to ....

Still out of town for awhile, helping my father after my mother's recent passing. Not much jazz here in Wichita, Kansas, but there's lots of heat (it was nearly 110F on Tuesday!). Hope to be back in Roc-cha-cha by mid-August. Until then (or about then...) here are the listings for live jazz in and around Rochester for the next seven days. By the way, I've kept open the poll I was taking about your experiences this year at the Xerox Rochester International Jazz Festival. Why don't you head on over and let us know what you think!
