A new club with an old name is bringing more ... jazz in Rochester, January 28-February 3
I'm not with you, but there's still ... live jazz in Rochester, February 11-17

Can't talk about the cold, it's over 50 degrees outside! But there is still ... jazz in Rochester, February 4-10

Jazz Club Sign

Some buzz around the new Pythodd Jazz Room in Charlotte (I hope to get out there, but it's looking doubtful before a trip to visit my father next week). XRIJF just announced that there would be a new venue at Anthology at 336 East Avenue and that they'd be releasing the full listings for the 15th Annual Xerox Rochester International Jazz Festival on March 22nd (at the aforementioned Anthology venue, by the way). Your trusty blogger will be there. 

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 any regular gigs below are no longer happening or if you have heard of anything that's not in the listings. Check back later in the week for stragglers.
