Boo Who? Halloween jazz and more (Live Jazz in ROC, October 30th-November 3rd)

Falling Leaves.... but we have the jazz for you (live Jazz in ROC, October 23rd-29th)

jazz clubFrom what I hear and can now confirm, the Strathallan Hotel is back in jazz and will apparently commence as it left off this week with Bob Sneider (see Friday). I will have to check it out as I also hear it is a different space than it was before (given that the entire hotel has been revamped, I'm not surprised). 

WGMC Jazz 90.1 still has their Fall pledge drive, which has started up.  Please click on the Donate Now button on the Jazz 90.1 website to give'em some scratch to keep the jazz going.
