Now that the dumpster fire that was 2020 is behind us, I thought I'd write and let you know we're still here and wish everyone a 2021 full of hope and opportunity, a year that at least starts to bring back a sense of a normal life and, I hope, more live jazz.
There is still some live jazz around Rochester during these dark days, as well as livestreams by local jazz artists. I'm trying to share these in the Pandemic Edition post that I published awhile back and keep updated as I hear about new events and livestreams. I'm also sharing other jazz livestreams on Facebook and Twitter. For my email followers, it has been pretty much radio silence (the post doesn't go out via email when I update it, so you need to check it out from time to time).
The past year has been rough and full of pain, loss and anxiety for so many. Let's push through the next few, dark months and then, I hope, slowly we'll begin coming out the other side, get together to hear live jazz and, perhaps, rebuild support for a better jazz scene here in Rochester. If you have any ideas on that last bit, please leave a comment.
