A "bye" week for jazz in Rochester (Live jazz in ROC, October 2-8)
Live Shots: It's Thursday, and there's live jazz in ROC

Seven Days of Live Jazz in Rochester (Live Jazz in ROC, October 9th-14th)

jazz 1 way

FYI, on Thursdays there appears to be a new venue bringing in local jazz groups and artists at least fairly regularly. That venue is Flour City Station on East Avenue (in the space where Milestones used to be). My buddies in Paradigm Shift are there this Thursday (and the $3 Door/Drinks Thursdays is where they appear to be featuring local jazz acts). Come out and support if you can as there has been a dwindling number of venues providing those "jazz stylings" you know you're looking for.  If you know of any more, let me know (I've heard rumours of some others coming back online, but will wait until I have confirmation to pass it on....). 

So, with no further adoo... here's the jazz in and around the ROC for the next seven days...
