The summer jazz looms, but since we still have some winter to go get in and get some jazz ...
A little early, but with the same great live jazz in the ROC ...

Is it Spring yet? Heat up with some jazz while you wait . . . .

I'm a member of Jazz 90.1 ... are you?  While many have pledged, they have about $20K to go in their drive this time.  Give them a few ducats and keep the jazz flowing (and the polka ... you gotta love polka!).... and now for the jazz in and around ROC for the next seven days:

We've compiled these listings from information obtained from the performing artists themselves and other sources. The aim is to give you a one-stop place to find all your jazz in Rochester. Only start times are listed, visit or call the venue for more details (the websites for many of the venues are in the right panel). Please forgive any discrepancies with reality and feel free to let me know what the problem is, and I'll get the corrections up on the site as soon as possible (click on the "Contact Us" button above). If you go out to hear a performance listed here, feel free to drop a comment to this post to let us know how it went. I want to hear from you!
