Is it Spring yet? Heat up with some jazz while you wait . . . .
Exodus to Jazz brings the Gabriel Alegria Afro-Peruvian Sextet to ROC this coming Friday

A little early, but with the same great live jazz in the ROC ...

jazz 1 wayI'm writing this a bit early today as I'm going out of town later today, so check back tomorrow in case I've added any "stragglers" (especially you who receive it via email).  For those who receive the blog posts via email, I've heard from some that the print is too small. As I have 50+ eyes, I feel your pain!  I have adjusted it, but have not been able to verify how it looks to you all, so send me a message and I'll see what I can do .... 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!
