Where's the jazz out there in ROC? We've got it right here, although it's a bit light ...

This way to live jazz in Rochester ... really ... this way!

jazz 1 way

Some great stuff this coming week, including a great get together of local jazz musicians for a concert at the Immanuel Baptist Church on Park Ave. and two concerts at the Bop Shop. 

Believe it or not it's also festival season with the Lilac starting on Friday.  Check out the concert listings here (some of them are jazz and some are out of the rain, including the one on Thursday with my buds in Paradigm Shift)

Heads Up ... Look for these Jazz Gigs and Special Jazz Events in the Future

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!
