Jazz 1 Way signWell, I'm still out of town, but things are pretty good jazz-wise in ROC.  Apologies to my email and feed subscribers for the glitch in the coding last week, which caused the feed not to fire and I didn't notice that the emails didn't go out until Sunday. Then, of course, when we fixed it, the feed fired and the Wednesday post went out on Sunday. Oh well....

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.
