Yule be boppin to the ... Live jazz around Rochester, December 23-29
Looking back and looking forward ... JazzRochester's 2021 and the year to come

2021? See ya! ... Live jazz in and around ROC, December 30th to January 5th

Live Jazz in ROC with Blue Note LP on turntableI'm glad to see the backside of 2021 and looking forward to the possibility that we'll return to some semblance of normal after the current surge of COVID.  I'm afraid it's still very light out there live jazz-wise.  That is, of course, likely the result of the holidays, but it's also people playing it safe. Can't blame 'em.  

Below are the gigs in and around Rochester for the next seven days, plus those I know about through the rest of December, January and into February. I suggest you call venues before heading out (many of them are available in the right panel of the blog... for those of you reading the email you have to come to the site to find the "right panel").  Let me know about anything I may have missed (especially New Years Eve events that are open to the public), or those that you know have been cancelled.
