Jazz Around Town: Who let the dog (days) out? Put them on a leash and get out for some jazz!
Jazz Around Town: Summertime! ... and the jazz is easy

Jazz Around Town: Gawd it (and the jazz) is hot out there!

You have to hand it to the folks who get out there and play for you when it is 80-90+ degrees outside. I'm hoping for a break in temps for the Webster Jazz Festival Friday and Saturday (for the first time in awhile I'm in town for it so I am planning to check it out). See the listings below for more about that festival, along with the rest of the  live gigs I found in and around Rochester over the next 7 days. If you hear of others, let me know, please:
