Jazz Around Town: Seven days of jazz in Rochester, NY
Jazz Around Town: As the summer wanes, there still some jazz in Rochester

Jazz Around Town: I quake at the amount of jazz in town...

So, did the earth move for you?  As a former dweller in Southern California, I tend not to feel them (not to mention the jackhammers going outside my office windows that day).

Shameless plug here...  Rochester City Newspaper is kicking off their "primary voting" today to get the candidates for their Best of 2011 edition. While I don't profess to be the best blogger out there (I consult with others on bloggin and know how much more I could do with this blog if I had the time), I think Jazz@Rochester serves a purpose for those of you who love jazz and want to know what's playing around town. Jazz@Rochester was in City's Annual Manual this year, so weirder things have happened.... So get out there and show that the audience for jazz is a bit larger than anyone knew.. Click on the image and go vote for Jazz@Rochester in Best Local Blog (#62) so we can at least be in the running later. Thanks.
