Another festival weekend and more ... Live jazz in Rochester, August 1-7

Jazz Club imageI can't believe the Park Avenue Arts Festival is this weekend!  This summer is slipping by so fast and us ROCites often measure the summer months by its festivals.  I've tried to pick out the jazz at the festival for you (and there's a link to the whole music lineup down in the Other Genres portion of the post.

We've compiled these gig and event 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 where available in the post for more information on the gig or tickets where needed. Only music start times are listed, so visit or call the venue for more details about when the doors open, etc. (the websites for many of the venues are in the right panel). Check back as I will add anything 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.
