Exodus to Jazz starts its 2012-2013 season Saturday with the Wallace Roney Septet
Live Shots: Phil Haynes' No Fast Food with Dave Liebman & Drew Gress @ Lovin' Cup

Jazz Around Town: What jazz are you going out to hear? It's a trifecta for me this week...

Dave Liebman sax imageAs the full house that attended can attest, the Pat Metheny Unity Band at German House on Saturday was outstanding! No more than catching my breath after that and Labor Day my week is thick with music I want to hear: No Fast Food at Lovin Cup tomorrow; Dave Rivello Ensemble with Bending & Breaking and Quintopus on Friday; and Exodus to Jazz on Saturday with the Wallace Roney Septet at the Lutheran Church of the Reformation. Hope to see some of you along the road...

Here are the listings of live jazz in and around Rochester for the next seven days. As usual, let me know about anything I may have missed or have something wrong....
