Yes, we're seeing XRIJF's backside, but there's still ... Live jazz in ROC, July 7-11
Jazz where life is worth living ... live jazz in Rochester and the burbs

The heat is on in the ... live jazz in Rochester, July 14-20

Jazz SignI hear it's hot in Rochester. I'm sorry, but you don't know hot until you've been in Wichita for June & July. It's been in the 90s (with 100 heat indexes) for it seems a month.  I think you need to get out into some air-conditioned space and hear some hot jazz.  Good thing there is some around town over the next seven days....
