Tie a toe-tag on it ... the 2015 XRIJF is no longer with us
The dog days of summer? (Live jazz in ROC, July 9-15)

Back to your regular programming ... live jazz throughout the year in ROC (July 2-8)

Now that we've reached the first Wednesday after the Rochester International Jazz Festival is done, it's back to your regular programming here on Jazz@Rochester.  If you want to check out my posts from the festival, click on the Category XRIJF 2015 in the middle column.

I'll head over to Havana Moe's (like every afternoon during XRIJF, as the image to the right attests) to try to write a wrap up post sometime soon with my thoughts on this year's festival, but feel free to talk about it in the comments or on Twitter or Facebook.

Please clue those you know love jazz to check out the site and join us here. 

We're kind of light this week, which is not unusual after the end of the XRIJF.  A lot of private gigs going on amongst our working musicians as well. 

After the "fold" (if there is one) you will find the next seven days of live jazz in and around Rochester. Let me know if something is missing and I'll add it in. Check back later in the week.
