Jazz Around Town: You don't have to wait until June 22nd for live jazz in Rochester

jazz signSupport your local jazz men & women the other 356 days of the year!  I am writing this from Kansas, where I'm visiting my father and, believe it or not, it's actually warmer where you are! I packed for warm and it's in the 50s here, but will be up around 80 by the time I leave for Chicago next week (where next week's post will be written). So... in addition to my travelogue you get listings for the live jazz for the next seven days in Rochester:
