Post-election blues? ... why not jazz it up (Live jazz in ROC, November 5-11)

B&Jazz with sax

Not a lot to report this week. I'm hitting the Sun Ra Arkestra gig tomorrow. See you there?  Let me know if you know of something I can fill my "empty" spaces.  No jazz for you?  Two days?  That's not right!

Please give us some love and help get the word out about Jazz@Rochester! Do you know someone who loves going out to hear live jazz?

After the "fold" (click the link if there is one for you) you will find the next seven days of live jazz in and around Rochester. Let me know if I missed anything or if any regular gigs below are no longer happening.  Check back later in the week for stragglers.
