Jazz Around Town: Is it over yet? Jazz marches on despite Spiderman's departure...

Jazz 1 way imageFor those of us who work downtown, the shooting of Spiderman 2 has been both interesting and frustrating as we negotiate the crazy changes. My office is right next to the Broad Street bridge, which is now the downtown bus stop for pretty much all of Main Street downtown. While it was a bit more convenient, us bus riders (I ride 1-3 times a week) really lucked out with the weather. I hope you got a chance to check it out while it was here, but we're pretty happy their packing up tomorrow. But as usual, the live jazz around Rochester marches on and here's the live gigs I found in and around Rochester over the next 7 days, plus some things coming up in the near future:
