Dee Alexander Qt at Jazz Showcase

Those who have Liked the Jazz@Rochester page on Facebook will know that I'm in Chicago and over the past week have hit several of my "stations of the [jazz] cross" hear in the Windy City, including Chicago favorite Dee Alexander seen right at Joe Segal's (a new NEA Jazz Master) Jazz Showcase. Also hit Andy's and, of course, some blues at Buddy Guy's Legends club (including hearing the man himself sing a couple). Next week I'll be in Wichita... not likely to see much in the way of jazz images next week, but who knows?

Below you will find the next seven days in live jazz in and around Rochester. Listen amongst yourselves....
