So, wanna hear some ... live jazz in Rochester, March 3-9?
Do you want to hear... live jazz in Rochester, March 17-23?

Got to get out for some ... Live jazz in Rochester, March 10-16

jazz saxI feel terrible (well not like last week, cold is over)! I keep hearing great things about the reimagined Pythodd Jazz Room in Charlotte. Lots of folks are really giving the place and the music great reviews and yet I have not been out there yet.  I hope to remedy that at least once this coming week...

If you want to get these listings posts (and the other posts I do occasionally) in your email, hit the image of Jazz@Rochester coming out of an envelope (yes, that's what it's supposed to be ... not my best effort....) in the middle column and follow the directions.  I won't spam you or share your email with anyone. Or, you can check out the other ways to connect with Jazz@Rochester by clicking on the icons above that image.

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. As always, 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.
