Jazz Around Town: Still hearing no jazz here in KS (except on my iPad), but here's your jazz in Rochester

Greetings from the prairie, where I'm visiting my father for a few days. Right now, I'm trying to finish this during a pretty mean severe thunderstorm (we had nickel size hail an hour ago), so pardon me as I occasionally glance at the red blobs on my Weatherbug app to see whether we need to be moving to the basement... Meanwhile, back in Rochester, the jazz goes on....
