Live Shots: Helen Sung Quintet at Exodus to Jazz
I think it's time I riffed on some jazz links ....

After the Bird, there is jazz in Rochester (Jazz in ROC, November 27th-December 3rd) jazz on Turkey Day, but you can put some on your sound device of choice while you consume your 4,200 calories of sleep inducing poultry (or whatever you're having). As it is a holiday, take the repeat listings with a grain of salt (or call first, as that will probably be more effective).

Open the link below (if it's there) to find the live jazz in and around the ROC for the next seven days... if you see an underline it is a link with more information for the event or venue. 

Thursday, November 27, 2014 (Happy Turkey Day!)

  • What you expected something here?  Let me know if I'm wrong... otherwise, put a good CD on while you eat your meal!

Heads Up ... Look for these Jazz Gigs and Special Jazz Events in the Future

We've compiled these listings from information obtained from our own knowledge of the jazz scene in and around Rochester, the performing artists themselves and other sources. The aim is to give you a one-stop place to find all your live jazz in Rochester. Click on the links (underlined words or phrases) where available in the post for more information on the gig.  Only start times are listed, visit or call the venue for more details (the websites for many of the venues are in the right panel). Lastly, please forgive any discrepancies with reality.  Let us know about such departures from reality if you can ....
