It's August and I remain in Wichita with my father.  I miss you all in ROC and have missed the summer (although not the heat) and its jazz.  However, it's all good.... So here are the next seven days of jazz in and around Rochester. I'm afraid it's a bit light this week. 

I have it on good authority that Tavern 135 has closed its doors, but perhaps we can watch for more jazz programming at the owners downtown location, Tavern 58 at Gibbs? 

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.
