I can't believe the Park Avenue Arts Festival is this weekend! This summer is slipping by so fast and us ROCites often measure the summer months by its festivals. I've tried to pick out the jazz at the festival for... Continue reading

The Rochester International Jazz Festival is over until June 19-27 next year. Now that we've had some time to rest and recharge, there is live jazz out there to hear until then. It is still a little light as everyone... Continue reading

Me and my ears were all over on the last night of the RIJF. The last two nights focus on the outdoor free shows and there are fewer "must see" acts in the Club Pass venues. However, that doesn't mean... Continue reading

In my experience at the Rochester International Jazz Festival, the penultimate night is usually a subdued night for me. It may be intentional programming or it may just be exhaustion setting in, but while I heard some good music on... Continue reading

For me, the 7th night of the Rochester International Jazz Festival captures what makes the RIJF a great festival—both the diversity of the music and the reason "international" is part of the festival title. Only two more nights to go,... Continue reading

And on the fifth day, JazzRochester’s publisher rested (only a little, maybe an extra hour of sleep). But before going home, there was some music to be had—with a bit of an adjustment to accommodate that sleep and a stop... Continue reading

On Sunday night there were some changes to my prescribed movements though the music at the CGI Rochester International Jazz Festival, which resulted in some discovery and, as with the first two nights, a great night of music. After my... Continue reading

At least for my ears, the first two nights of music at the Rochester International Jazz Festival have been just right and a thoroughly satisfying musical, eight artists/groups with distinctly different musical journeys as I walked (and later limped as... Continue reading

My first night at the 2019 CGI Rochester International Jazz Festival was a great way to start the festival. Watching people trickle in at the beginning from my "office" (Havana Moe's on East) and then following my eclectic path through... Continue reading

Every year, I make a “grand plan” for JazzRochester's coverage of the Rochester International Jazz Festival. Most years, the amount of time I have to implement these plans falls short of my grand plan. This year has been no different.... Continue reading
