Live Shots: MOPDTK etc. at The Bug Jar
Exodus to Jazz would like to introduce you to Kate Davis on May 7th

Jazz Around Town: Git yer jazz right here in Rochester...

Live Shots: MOPDTK etc. at The Bug Jar Was nice to finally get into the Bug Jar for the MOPDTK show last week along with the music of Rochester's own Bending & Breaking (including the ditty Nobody Reads Your Blog, which they assured the crowd DID NOT refer to Jazz@Rochester, although I wouldn't be sure about that...) and the Motown and soul sounds of Bitchin' Kitchen. It was great to see a lot of folks, coming out of several different generations old and young, coming out to hear compelling and new jazz music that defies categorization (although I think there were a lot there to hear the Kitchen.... they didn't all leave when their set ended). Now I'll have to get out there to see something that fits their usual musical palette sometime soon. This coming 7 days brings mostly local jazz, although guitarist Mary Halvorsen, whose album Saturn Sings has received a lot of critical praise, joins the Tom Rainey Trio presented by Bop Arts on Tuesday. By the way if you know of anyone coming into town over the next few months (other than the jazz fest of course), let me know so I can add it to the look ahead listings at the end of this post. Hope to see you out there!
