Jazz Around Town: The countdown begins to 2014... celebrate with some jazz

Jazz Around Town: Have a Yule that's Cool...

Dexter Gordon with Santa Hat

Well as we wind down to the end of the year, I'm listening to some holiday jazz while I write this post. Heading out to be with family for the holidays, so next one will come from the sun and fun in Wichita, Kansas!

Lots of ways to win stufff at WGMC these days while helping them to keep pumping out the jazz radio. Now through December 22nd, you can win a stocking full of great jazz CD’s as part of the Jazz90.1 stocking stuffer giveaway!  Check it out here. Then there's their 12 Days of Christmas, too.

Hope you all have a wonderful holiday season. This week's listings end up with the usual crickets on December 25th, but there's some music out there the rest of the week! Here are the live jazz gigs I found in and about Rochester, NY, over the next 7 days (given its the holidays, I would call first as some of these are possibly not happening):
