Damn... is it over already? Although the temperature is still up there (especially the next couple of days), the light is fading... OK, enough with the depressing stuff about our coming winter. One of Jazz@Rochester's goals is to support live... Continue reading

Well, there's no jazz on Labor Day (why would we ask them to work it when we're not?)... However, there are six other days. Here's the live jazz in and around the ROC for the next seven days: Thursday, August... Continue reading

I know it's summer (well, it's starting to look and feel like fall a bit...), but like lightning bugs in a bottle, live jazz will fade away if it is not provided some air. To that end (and because ETJ... Continue reading

The summer is upon us and jazz musicians turn to gigs elsewhere or just kick up their heels for a break at a lake or some other clime. There's not much around and I expect that some of the gigs... Continue reading

So it's Park Avenue Festival in my neck of the ROC and there are several others in the city and in Buffalo this coming weekend. There is some jazz (not much), but that's not too surprising. If I missed any... Continue reading

So, if you haven't noticed, there's not a lot going on, jazzwise in the ROC. Where is everybody...? Let me know if I've missed something. Here's the live jazz in and around the ROC for the next seven days: Thursday,... Continue reading

Recently, while looking around at the WGMC Jazz 90.1 website, I ran across a video produced by local Rochester filmmaker Dave Esposito, who has recently released a documentary showcasing Jazz90.1. Called “School for Jazz: The Jazz 90.1 Story,” the video... Continue reading

I've given up on doing a post wrapping up the XRIJF for 2014. Not like you've been banging on my virtual doors asking for one ... so I'm taking the hint. Moving on ... here's the live jazz in and... Continue reading

I'm still struggling with writing about the 2014 XRIJF, busy with work and otherwise, so another weekly listings post has come up before I got it posted. While by the time I finally get it posted the XRIJF will be... Continue reading

You might have expected a wrap up post here for the recently departed Xerox Rochester International Jazz Festival before the first of the typical Wednesday listings post was published? Nope, still recovering from nine days of music, food and ....... Continue reading

There are still a few days left of Xerox Rochester International Jazz Festival but that doesn't mean you cannot find jazz elsewhere around town. Remember to check the listed gigs before you go as things jazz in Rochester always get... Continue reading

This blog will continue to let you know about live jazz in Rochester even after the last note is played on June 28th for the Xerox Rochester International Jazz Festival. I thought it would be a good time to reprise... Continue reading

I thought I'd add this feature post at the top of the blog to guide you to my previously published posts for each evening of the XRIJF. As always, these picks reflect my own eclectic tastes in music. I may... Continue reading

Every night of the Xerox Rochester International Jazz Festival, after the last concert is over and they're packing up the stages for overnight, some XRIJF patrons who are not yet ready to call it quits head over to the Rochester... Continue reading

Well, it's here! I have a couple of hours before heading downtown to Jazz Street. Beautiful day here in Rochester, so why am I here inside writing? To record my picks for Friday and Saturday, the last two days of... Continue reading

As the excitement builds for the start of the festival tomorrow, I decided that I should pull out as many of the stops as possible to get these "pre-festival" posts out before the Rochester International Jazz Festival begins (tomorrow), as... Continue reading

Like I wrote last week, the jazz around ROC doesn't stop when the Xerox Rochester International Jazz Festival comes to town, but it does get harder to hear it over the noise generated about the festival. Remember to check the... Continue reading

So, I was getting a bit worried about pounding all these posts (and others I have in the queue) before the festival starts on Friday and then "discovered" (again) that being in this situation is not a new thing for... Continue reading
