Things are picking up a bit this coming week, so check out the next seven days of live jazz in and around Rochester. Hope you check out Jazz 90.1's Evening of Jazz, Wine and Art at Artisan Works tomorrow. You... Continue reading

My time in Wichita is coming to a close I'm afraid. On Saturday morning, my father passed away, peacefully, with his wife, my sister and me at his side. He was a wonderful man who touched many during his 80... Continue reading

There is still some jazz at the far fringe of the Fringe. The last festival of the summer (as it sashays into Fall). So I can officially say I missed summer in Rochester this year. That's OK. I'm where I... Continue reading

When I went live with the new design, I told you there might be some hiccups along the way and one suddenly occurred (at least for me) when I updated the last post. On some browsers the new banner image... Continue reading

Jazz at the Fringe. Another festival I'm going to regret missing, but I remain in Wichita, KS for the time-being. There will be jazz and "jazz-like" music presented at the First Niagara Rochester Fringe Festival this year, which I've added... Continue reading

Well, what do you think? Over the weekend, JazzRochester got a new look. For email subscribers, please click through and take a look at the site itself (I ask because sometimes when I hear from you, you say "I get... Continue reading

Hard to believe that I started blogging on this URL during the month of September ten years ago (I write "on this URL" because I had been blogging at a different site that no longer exists—Blogsome—from April of 2005, so... Continue reading

I've been working on some changes to the look and feel of Jazz@Rochester. I hope to go live with them over the Labor Day weekend if I can find the time here in Wichita to finish the work. After the... Continue reading

It's August and I remain in Wichita with my father. I miss you all in ROC and have missed the summer (although not the heat) and its jazz. However, it's all good.... So here are the next seven days of... Continue reading

No live jazz for me here in Wichita, Kansas, but you'll find some in and around Rochester this week. After the "fold" (click the link if there is one for you) you will find the next seven days of live... Continue reading

It's a bit light this week. Doldrums of summer in ROC I guess. Hope you are having a great one. I'm in a jazz desert out here in Wichita... After the "fold" (click the link if there is one for... Continue reading

Looks like I'm missing the summer in Rochester. Still with my father in Wichita, Kansas. Hope you're all having a great one and getting out to hear some of the live jazz in and around our fine city. After the... Continue reading

The town of Webster's motto is "Where Live is Worth Living." I guess that leaves the rest of us out in the cold (or the heat this time of year). This weekend is the annual Webster Jazz Festival. This year... Continue reading

I hear it's hot in Rochester. I'm sorry, but you don't know hot until you've been in Wichita for June & July. It's been in the 90s (with 100 heat indexes) for it seems a month. I think you need... Continue reading

Yes, it is over. Yes, I missed it this year (first time in over 10 years) and don't need reminding how great it was this year (I was watching from Wichita and it was painful enough). Now that the XRIJF... Continue reading

Before the week covered below ends, the 15th Annual Xerox Rochester International Jazz Festival will be history. It looks like it has been fun for those of you who were able to go. I will continue to watch for special... Continue reading

As I've said in previous posts, I am not going to be a the Xerox Rochester International Jazz Festival this year. I'm in Wichita, Kansas, helping to take care of my father, who is on home hospice. While I'll miss... Continue reading

Hard to believe it's the day after tomorrow. Hard to believe I'm still in Kansas and won't be joining you at XRIJF this year. As I noted last week, my coverage during this year's festival will necessarily be limited. I... Continue reading

There are fewer than 10 days left until Rochester's streets fill up and the Xerox Rochester International Jazz Festival gets underway. I'm still in Kansas with my father, who is on home hospice. I won't be joining you at the... Continue reading

You are correct, sir. Confirmed it with one of the promoters after you (unfortunately, after my post and email went out). Thanks for the heads up!
This happens every year as folks gear up for the Xerox Rochester International Jazz Festival.... Part of it is probably that a lot of folks are involved in the festival itself; but for others it may be a time they... Continue reading

Having heard Paul Smoker play a number of times since moving to Rochester, I knew the intensity and beauty of his playing and compositions. I felt that his recent passing on May 14th should be noted here in these pages,... Continue reading
