Jazz Around Town: Live jazz in Rochester NY over the next seven days
Jazz Around Town: Have a Yule that's Cool...

Jazz Around Town: Did you ROC the Day? Now will you jazz the week?

Jazz with saxWhen this post comes out you'll still have a very few hours to participate in ROC the Day, so support those nonprofits that help us hear live jazz during the year, including Jazz 90.1 and the Little Theatre. Or choose your favorite charity by clicking on the icon to the right (which will disappear tomorrow....).

Hat tip to ESM. Grammy nominations are out and four Eastman graduates are nominees this year: John Hollenbeck, Bob Ludwig, Maria Schneider, and David Slonaker. Most of them are jazzers (guess which....).
