Jazz Club

I'm out of town so doing this remotely, so  listen amongst yourselves to the stuff around town. Not much else to report... but maybe some live jazz here in Chicago later (Herbie and Chick are a few blocks north of where I'm staying on Friday, but I think it's sold out... sad).

Below you will find the next seven days in live jazz in and around Rochester. Enjoy!
