It's a long road back to ... live jazz in Rochester, November 3-9
A noted passing ... some words on Tom Hampson

Elect to listen to ... live jazz in Rochester, November 10-16

OK, the election is over (finally). I'm stunned, but I expect we'll survive the next four years. Whether you're in a celebratory mood or, like me, want some music to soothe your mood, there's probably some live jazz out there for you over the next seven days that'll fit the bill.  See below to find it...

Hey, we're trying to build a community of listeners for live jazz here, so I'd love it if you'd share this site with friends and family who like to get out to hear some of that great music live from time to time. If you want to follow us on Twitter or Like us on Facebook, click on the images above the banner. Or share the post by clicking on the Twitter or Facebook links at the end. To get an email in your inbox when we post, click on the Join Our Email List link above the banner. As always, let me know if any gigs below are no longer happening, stuff I got wrong, or if you have heard of something that's not in these listings so I can add it.

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 and around 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 after publication. Look for the added image  graphic next to the listing. Lastly, please forgive me where my listings prove to be wrong, I rely on you, the venues and the artists to let me know when I'm wrong, so don't hesitate to let us know about such departures from reality if you can by clicking on the Contact Us link above.
