Welcome to the year 2015 in jazz in Rochester! Nice how the transition between years fit with my posting schedule.  As expected, it's a bit light, but you can always find something out there!  Come back to check if you don't find anything the first time.

My New Year's resolutions include trying to get out and hear a lot more live jazz and I hope you join me in that promise. What are your jazz resolutions?

Open the link below (if you're not reading this in an email) to find the live jazz in and around the ROC for the next seven days...
