People say you can find ... Live jazz in ROC, May 23rd to May 29th
Jazz forward at Fairport Canal Days, May 31st through June 2nd

In the hopes of more jazz later this summer and a successful Clarissa Street Reunion, a fundraiser this week...

Named after a street that has seen a lot of the great jazz history of Rochester and was a center of Rochester's African-American community, the Clarissa Street Reunion festival will be held this year on August 17th to again celebrate that community. In addition to gospel and R&B stages, the main stage will be the Matt McDowell Jazz stage. The 24th Annual Reunion returns to Clarissa Street after being located at the Adam Street Recreation Center field the past two years.

This coming Thursday, May 30th, there will be a fundraiser for the Reunion from 5:00 to 9:00 pm at Skyway, located at 90 South Clinton Avenue (yes, part of THAT Skyway has been made into a hip new spot). Paradigm Shift will be playing (Guitarist Mel Henderson is a co-chair of the Clarissa Street Committee along with Jose DaCosta). There will be a $20 donation at the door and all donations go to the Reunion.  All I can say is the better the funds, the better the jazz...
