Damn... is it over already?  Although the temperature is still up there (especially the next couple of days), the light is fading... OK, enough with the depressing stuff about our coming winter. 

One of Jazz@Rochester's goals is to support live jazz in Rochester. To that end, if you're reading this post and are either a local ROC area jazz musician or are presenting live jazz in and around Rochester, I hope you'll consider signing up on our email list (one for each...).
