Looking back and looking forward ... JazzRochester's 2021 and the year to come

Despite Omicron there is still ... Live jazz around Rochester, January 6-12

Welcome to live jazz in Rochester for 2022! For what its worth as we all recalculate our risks, below are the limited number of live jazz 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 (the websites for some 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").  Please let me know about anything I may have missed or that you know have been cancelled.

Just so you know that I didn't miss it entirely, I must have had too much to drink before doing last week's post (or perhaps just exhausted from my vacation exertions... ha!) as I totally messed up the dates on the listings after January 1. Not a good sign that no one else noticed and let me know of my error....
