Jazz@Rochester Picks for XRIJF 2012: Local artists shine at XRIJF this year

Jazz Around Town: And you thought it would be another XRIJF artist post?

me in XRIJF tshirt with thumbJust because the Xerox Rochester International Jazz Festival seems to suck all of the air out of the live jazz scene in and around Rochester doesn't mean some of our great local artists won't be playing in venues around Rochester. I always maintain my Wed. posts during the festival amongst my coverage of the festival itself. However, I urge caution as some of the regular gigs I list may not actually happen. If someone lets me know something is not happening, I'll cross it out on this post, so check back or contact the venue before you go (the sites for most of them are in the right panel). You will not find listings for the jazz fest in this post (although I aim to focus on local artists in a post very soon). There are many options for that, including later posts (and my current picks), the XRIJF site (just click on the logo in the middle panel), City Newspaper's Jazz Fest Guide, and movies, music, food and other goings on at The Little Theatre's Jazz Fest Free-for-All. Let me know of any changes or things I've missed.

I'm going to repeat last week's image because I'm ready for JAZZ FEST!
