Jazz Around Town: New Year's "resolutions" and live jazz in Rochester

Created on Tagxedo.comSo we begin a new year and I've thought about what kinds of resolutions I should make about this blog. Nope...not making any promises, but I will try to get some more content out this year. I know that the most important thing to many of you is this here kind of post, not my mental meanderings about jazz and the scene here in Rochester. I will try.... that's all I can muster now. I will be getting out to hear more this year, though. Must ... get... outta... the house.

I've tried to winnow out the gigs that are still being listed elsewhere but are no longer going on, but may have missed some, so if you are dead set on seeing a particular one, best contact the venue to confirm.
