Back to your regular programming ... live jazz throughout the year in ROC (July 2-8)
Summertime in Rochester and live jazz is running hot and cool (Live jazz in ROC, July 16-22)

The dog days of summer? (Live jazz in ROC, July 9-15)

I suspect that a lot of live jazz gigs around Rochester  in the next week are at festivals in the area or beyond (other than the Corn Hill fest here in Rochester, which I've included), or private gigs.  As always, if you know of something I've missed, drop me a line (click on the Contact Us button above).

The XRIJF folks are hoping you'll take their survey about this year's festival before they close it this Friday. I hear from those who have that one question is about whether you'd still get a Club Pass if Kilbourn Hall concerts were separately ticketed events. You may want to weigh in on that....

Please clue those you know love live jazz to check out the site and join us here or on Twitter, Facebook or Instagram

After the "fold" (if there is one) you will find the next seven days of live jazz in and around Rochester. Check back later in the week for stragglers.
