Jazz Around Town: (Not) Home for the Holidays

dexter gordon santaStill in Kansas, so you'll have to find your jazz in Rochester on your own...just kidding, it's all here (or as much of it as I can find). Of course, is it light over the next seven days for good reason. Let me know if you know of any New Years Eve events so I can add them in next week's post.  While I take a lot of pains to ensure accuracy, sometimes these listings are wrong... so best to make sure.

Hope you all have a happy holiday!
