I miss you and ... live jazz in Rochester, May 26th through June 1st
As we slide toward the jazz festival, there is still ... live jazz in Rochester, NY, June 2-8

Get a pre-XRIJF jazz fix on (and get some sun) at Fairport Canal Days, June 3-5

image from www.fairportcanaldays.comThis year's Fairport Canal Days is coming next Friday-Sunday, June 3-5. The music at FCD continues to skew well toward jazz and featuring local jazz artists. FCD remains committed to featuring local talent—from school bands to emerging local artists and groups, to the very best world-class professionals who call the Rochester area home and those hailing from beyond our area. I've added all of the listings received from the folks at FCD below. As always, FCD is an all volunteer, family-friendly, non-profit festival where all proceeds remain within the community.

While I won't be there to join you (I'm still in Wichita, KS), I hope you get out for it. I went last year and had great time (and got my first sunburn of the season).
