Yes, my copy of the email was, shall we say, hard to read...
Rest, Mordecai, rest . . . the end of festival week will never be the same

The next seven days of live jazz in Rochester (and to my email subscribers: I'm working on it...)

jazz sign 2SPECIAL NOTICE TO MY EMAIL SUBSCRIBERS: Still working with MailChimp to find out why the emails of my posts are not formatting in a way they can be read.  I think I know what the problem is and know I'll get an answer and it'll work out, but it just didn't happen in time for this post. Those who receive my posts via email will probably get the same single paragraph without any formatting that came last week. Sorry, but day job got in the way.  

However, there is an easy way to get your Jazz@Rochester fix. Just click on the post title in the email and it should take you to the post on blog itself. In addition to the post, you'll find all sorts of links and other information that some of you (by the emails I get) may not even know existed. But don't worry, it'll get sorted out soon ... I hope. If not, I'll go back to the previous system, I promise. On the other hand, it may work and, in that case, nevermind....
