How's this for diversity in my ears? Day 6 at XRIJF...
It's going to be one of those "it's who you don't know days" ... Day Seven of XRIJF

Jazz Around Town: Giving you the local jazz scene OTHER than XRIJF

jazz signHope you're all having fun at the Xerox Rochester International Jazz Festival. I am having enough that my planned out "editorial calendar" has completely fallen apart. I'm writing when I can and when the work allows (yes, I'm taking a "staycation" but my work really doesn't stop and wait for me...), which is to say not too much.  

However, this is one post that I always write during XRIJF. In addition to the local jazz artists who are playing the festival, there is still some other jazz going on around Rochester over the remaining days of the XRIJF and into next week. This is mostly an XRIJF-free zone, other than those gigs that are now cropping up in and around the festival site to provide local artists more opportunities to connect to audieces who we all hope will extend their live jazz listening activities beyond these nine days in June.
