Jazz Around Town: It's my birthday and I'll post if I want to...

gerald clayton imageThe image in my last post is actually how I think about turning 50, but my body today is reminding me of the half century I've walked the planet. The image at right was from the great concert given by Grammy nominee Gerald Clayton and his Trio last Sunday for the Exodus to Jazz series. It was a special night of music.

Here are the listings for the next seven days of jazz in Rochester. Hope you can find some time to get out and support live jazz here in the ROC!
