As the XRIJF wraps up, there's still live jazz elsewhere in Rochester . . .
As the ROC festival season swings into full gear, check out the live jazz here and about (July 10-16, 2014)

We now return you to your regular programming ... live jazz in ROC

me, thumbs up

You might have expected a wrap up post here for the recently departed Xerox Rochester International Jazz Festival before the first of the typical Wednesday listings post was published?  Nope, still recovering from nine days of music, food and ....  plus I had a different take on this year's festival (you may have noticed in these pages) and the blog and I am still ruminating on that before "wrapping it up."  

OK, here's the live jazz in and around the ROC for the next seven days (check before you go on anything on Friday and over the weekend, given that it is a holday and all):

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. 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!
