Jazz Around Town: Festing
Jazz Around Town: Seven days of live jazz in Rochester ... sniff, sniff... Achoo!

Jazz Around Town: You think it's hot in Rochester, try Wichita... although at least you've got the jazz

jazz 1 way

I'm sitting here in the 100+ degree heat of Wichita, Kansas (OK, I'm actually in an air-conditioned house, but why would I be outside now?), here for my father's wedding on Saturday (he's getting remarried at 76). I'm standing up as  Best Man at my father's wedding ... now there's a switch!

It's Wednesday and that means time for the listings of live jazz in and around Rochester for the next seven days:
