There is very little ... jazz in ROC (this week), June 9-15
Jazz fest starts day after tomorrow, but look here for some other ... jazz in ROC, June 23-29

Even if XRIJF will be here soon, you can get out and see some ... live jazz in ROC, June 16-22

Jazz 1-way sign

There are fewer than 10 days left until Rochester's streets fill up and the Xerox Rochester International Jazz Festival gets underway. I'm still in Kansas with my father, who is on home hospice. I won't be joining you at the festival this year, although due to the reason I'm not going to be in Rochester, I am quite happy about that as it means my Dad is still with us. I'll miss some great music this year. My coverage this year will be necessarily limited.  

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.
