Tom Harrell's Colors of a Dream at Exodus to Jazz on August 23rd ... Go Hear This!
Live Shots: Tom Harrell's Colors of a Dream in Rochester

Use it (live jazz) or lose it ... Next seven days of live jazz in Rochester

Tom Harrell

I know it's summer (well, it's starting to look and feel like fall a bit...), but like lightning bugs in a bottle, live jazz will fade away if it is not provided some air. To that end (and because ETJ promoter Jose DaCosta is a friend), I wanted to plug Exodus to Jazz concert with Tom Harrell and Colors of a Dream on Saturday one more time.

Like any live jazz in Rochester, we need to support it or it will go away.... Hope to see you there! Now, here's the live jazz in and around the ROC for the next seven days:
