Four80East coming to Rochester this Saturday, October 18th
Live Shots: Exodus to Jazz with Four80East and Paradigm Shift

The warm temperature is tempting, but likely fleeting (the live Jazz in ROC, October 16th-22nd)

jazz 1 way

As you can see from the Live Shots in the last couple of posts, I was out a bit hearing some live music over the past week. It was great getting out again (have been somewhat of a hermit recently ... or just lazy!). Getting out this week to hear the Four80East concert being presented by Exodus to Jazz (and yet another performance by my buds in Paradigm Shift) 

Here's the "ask" this week.  If you're out at a gig, please ask the artists and venues if they know about Jazz@Rochester and suggest they visit and click on the button above for "For Jazz Artists & Venues."  I'd be obliged....

WGMC Jazz 90.1 also has an "ask" going with 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.

Here's the live jazz in and around the ROC for the next seven days...
