Jazz Around Town: ROC the Day and then Jazz the Week

Jazz Around Town: Something to do while waiting for the snow to start falling ....

Where is the snow?  Don't worry, we'll get ours... Unfortunately, I've been holed up at work a lot recently getting my end of the year shipments out so haven't been able to get out to hear much, but I hope to in the coming weeks. Check out the Eastman New Jazz Ensemble at RIT on Friday or Chieli Minucci & Special EFX at Exodus To Jazz on Saturday, or one of our other fine jazz purveyors....
