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 these listings prove to be wrong, I rely on you, the venues and the artists to let me know when we've got bad information, so don't hesitate to let us know about such departures from reality by clicking on the Contact Us link above.
