Welcome WGMC'ers to our comprehensive listings of ... live jazz in Rochester, NY, February 15-21 (now with more...)

b&w jazz sign

This is the first post after WGMC Jazz 90.1 and JazzRochester launched a partnership where their Club Calendar is now a direct link to JazzRochester.  For new visitors from Jazz 90.1, here's the deal.  JazzRochester, as implied by its name, has for more than a decade published these weekly listings focused on live jazz in the city and surrounding area (plus some selected acts appearing in and near Buffalo, the Finger Lakes, Ithaca and Syracuse).  WGMC, however, also included some other types of music in its Club Calendar--blues and some roots music.  As I don't want to leave those Jazz 90.1 patrons in the dark, I'll work to add listings for those as well. They'll be in a separate section you'll see below. Please bear with me as we adjust to that new area and note that for now I cannot be as comprehensive in those areas as I am for the live jazz in the area.  I'm looking forward to our partnership with Jazz 90.1. When you're ready to go back to Jazz 90.1 site, just click on their logo in the right panel.

As always, let me know if any gigs below are no longer happening, if I got something wrong wrong, or if you have heard of something that's not in these listings that I can add.   NOTE (2/15): As a lot of the venues repeat (and some of the artists), I tend to copy last week's post and use that as a basis for the new post.  On Wednesday there was a glitch and, due to an observant reader commenting below ... what Laura Dubin's doing that Eastman House gig I saw last week again?... I found out that many of the items that I had deleted had returned to the listings post.  I was focused elsewhere apparently and didn't notice.  I think I've caught them all below and hang my head in shame (at least all of them are in the future...).  Thanks, Tom!

Yes it is February 2018 and here’s where to find ... live jazz in ROC, February 1-7

Find Jazz Here

You wouldn’t know from last week’s post, which harkened back a year to 2017....

I’m in NYC writing this post and, I’m sure this won’t be a surprise, will be catching some jazz at The Jazz Standard tonight.  But my sojourn here (for business and an extra day) is, alas, soon to be over.

As always, let me know if any gigs below are no longer happening, if I got something wrong wrong, or if you have heard of something that's not in these listings that I can add.

Jazz 1-way sign

Despite being "in residence" at the Xerox Rochester International Jazz Festival for the nine days starting on Friday, I still try to do these listing posts during.  However, you won't find listings here for the festival, only for those who are playing outside the festival.  For local jazz musicians who will be playing the XRIJF, see the post I published yesterday, XRIJF 2017: A chance to hear the music you can hear the other 356 days of the year…. Let me know of anything outside the XRIJF that you hear about by using the Contact Us tab above.

Check out tonight on 13 WHAM TV at 8:00 pm. They're doing a preview of XRIJF taped last week at the Radisson Hotel Rochester Riverside with The Karl Stabnau Quintet, featuring Bob Sneider, Dan Vitale, Mike Melito, and Mike Kaupa (plus a special guest TV anchor on clarinet.  You might see someone with a hat in the "audience"....

XRIJF 2017: A chance to hear the music you can hear the other 356 days of the year…

XRIJF logo As JazzRochester’s main focus is the live jazz you can hear in and around Rochester during the other 356 days of the year, I always provide a separate post that lets you know the local jazz musicians and bands who will be heard at the XRIJF, bands from the University of Rochester's Eastman School of Music, and the great local high school bands playing early in the evening at the City of Rochester Stage on Jazz Street.

During the festival, I tend to focus on those artists coming from out of town, taking the opportunity to hear new sounds that won’t likely be here in Rochester otherwise. That doesn’t meant that I don’t think that the great local jazz musicians are not worthy of your attention.  Here they are:
