jazz 2 way signI'm still struggling with writing about the 2014 XRIJF, busy with work and otherwise, so another weekly listings post has come up before I got it posted. While by the time I finally get it posted the XRIJF will be but a faint memory for most, this blog is as much a personal chronicle for me in my live in jazz in Rochester and I want to record it anyway.  

But for the time being here's the live jazz in and around the ROC for the next seven days. It's still quite light and I'd like to hear about some of the gigs going on at :
