XRIJF, Day 3: Opening your ears to who you don't know on June 22nd ...
XRIJF, Day 4: Monday of the festival is a heady brew of jazz ....

XRIJF's coming, but not here yet ... until then listen to the home grown variety of jazz

jazz 1 way

The jazz around ROC doesn't stop when the Xerox Rochester International Jazz Festival comes to town, but it does get harder to hear it over the noise generated about the festival (including my noise here, which will continue to pick up over the 9 days). Given my work on covering and getting ready for the jazz festival, I rely even more on local fans who let me know about things I may be missing otherwise, so feel free to drop me a line if you don't see something here you think should be. I would also take whatever you see here that you cannot confirm with a grain of salt. Things jazz in Rochester always get a little hinky around this time of year.  

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