Jazz Around Town: I quake at the amount of jazz in town...
Jazz Around Town: Jazz gigs for your next 7 days ...

Jazz Around Town: As the summer wanes, there still some jazz in Rochester

Jazz 1 way imageWe dodged the Irene bullet and I hope your loved ones east of here fared well....

A holiday weekend means a bit more barbequing, traveling and what not, but not as much jazz around town (although you can see there is something every night).

You can still vote for Jazz@Rochester in City's Best of 2011. Vote early, but contrary to my Chicago background, not often...Have a great Labor Day weekend!
