While at the XRIJF, hear some of the jazz you can enjoy in Rochester the other 356 days of the year ....
As we slide toward XRIJF, there is ... Live jazz around Rochester, May 31st to June 6th

Sun (we hope), Erie Canal, Jazz ... Fairport Canal Days

image from www.fairportcanaldays.comThis year's Fairport Canal Days is coming up Friday-Sunday, June 1-3. FCD prides itself as being the "jazz festival before the jazz festival," with the vast majority of its music during the three day event being local jazz musicians on 4 stages spread across Fairport's downtown area near the canal.  When the weather cooperates it's a great place to hear them. 

According to the website, this year the music lineup has a broader spectrum, including bluegrass, barbershop quartet, and an extraordinary elementary school jazz band.  You can get the music schedule for Canal Days here (and here for Canal Nights on Saturday).
