I've been in Kansas for the past week, but the jazz goes on here in ROC (I'm traveling back today ... did ya miss me?)

Wanted to call your attention to the first of a new weekly radio series on WGMC Jazz 90.1 featuring Eastman School of Music jazz performances on Jazz@Eastman: Past, Present and Future, the programs will feature performances as well as works by Eastman faculty, students, and alumni. A collaboration between Eastman and Jazz 90.1 the series is underwritten in part by RG&E and will be hosted and co-produced by saxophonist Alexa Tarantino. The premiere on June 4 gives listeners an inside look at Eastman’s jazz department with Campbell. 

OK, here's the live jazz in and around the ROC for the next seven days:
