Martin Luther King had a dream for jazz, too ....
No jazz for you? Only a little (Jazz in ROC, January 29 to February 4, 2015)

It's cold out there! .... In more ways than one (Jazz in ROC, January 22-28, 2015)

jazz 1 way

I know that I don't want to head out into the cold these days and realize that it is having its effect on how much is out there. However, I know there's more out there ... somewhere ... but I'm a busy guy with a demanding day job. I rely on you, my readers, to spread the word that we're here and trying to help get more live jazz out there for you. So when you're at a venue that has live jazz, let them know about us. OK? Now back to your regularly scheduled programming ....

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...
