Get some jazz heat for your winter nights (Jazz in ROC, December 4-10)
Happy 94th Birthday Mr. Terry! Guess who showed up to play ....

Stay indoors ... hear jazz! (Jazz in ROC, December 11-17)

Jazz 1 way

As our first appreciable snowfall drifts outside as I write this, the mind turns to staying indoors. Guess what, in the winter I hear that's where the jazz is!

If you want to hear Dianna Krall in the Big House on the opening night of the Xerox Rochester International Jazz Festival and didn't get tickets, then you're in luck. XRIJF announced a matinee (4pm) performance for that June 19th show. Tickets go on sale in all the usual places on Friday, December 12th at 10:00 am. 

Open the link below (if it's there) to find the live jazz in and around the ROC for the next seven days...
