Paul Smoker: "In his playing there was a fierce beauty, and in his person a helpful, generous guy"
Even if XRIJF will be here soon, you can get out and see some ... live jazz in ROC, June 16-22

There is very little ... jazz in ROC (this week), June 9-15

Jazz sign

This happens every year as folks gear up for the Xerox Rochester International Jazz Festival.... Part of it is probably that a lot of folks are involved in the festival itself; but for others it may be a time they schedule some time away from ROC as the XRIJF sucks the "jazz" air out of the area. Still some around town, though.... 

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.

Heads Up ... Look for these Jazz Gigs and Special Jazz Events in the Future

We've compiled these listings from information obtained from our own knowledge of the jazz scene in and around Rochester, the performing artists themselves and other sources. The aim is to give you a one-stop place to find all your live jazz in Rochester. Click on the links (underlined words or phrases) where available in the post for more information on the gig.  Only start times are listed, so visit or call the venue for more details (the websites for many of the venues are in the right panel).  Check back as I will add any gigs I hear about. Look for the added image next to the listing. Lastly, please forgive any discrepancies with reality.  Let us know about such departures from reality if you can by clicking on the Contact Us button above ....

Unfortunately that Glasper show was cancelled due to lack of ticket sales. Talk about xrijf sucking the jazz out of the area...

You are correct, sir. Confirmed it with one of the promoters after you (unfortunately, after my post and email went out). Thanks for the heads up!
