Jazz Around Town: Hot enough for you? Here's some hot jazz....

It's been hot and that's resulted in a wish to stay indoors.

 

Why not hear some live jazz?

Well, again in the aftermath of XRIJF, I've spent some time decompressing and let it go too long to write much about my experience in these pages. I haven't even counted up the gigs I saw during the festival. While I have some standouts, my overall experience was great—I spent my time listening and not as much working the blog and brand. That was a recipe for more fun. Here's the jazz for the next seven days in and around Rochester.
