As you can see things are starting to pick up jazz-wise.  I'm sure there is more than what I know about.  So, below are listings for live jazz (and some blues) gigs in and around Rochester for the next seven days, plus those I know about through April.  Please let me know about anything I may have missed or that you know have been cancelled. Although things continue to open up (for now...), I still 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").
