A little light this week...  but I call your attention to the April 1st gig with Randy Brecker and Ada Roditi at Hilton High School and Tony Levin's Stick Men both Friday and Saturday at Lovin Cup.   Otherwise, find below listings for live jazz (and some blues) gigs in and around Rochester for the next seven days, plus those I know about through April and into May.  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").
