Return from Rochester

The sign at the Rochester Plaza in case you hadn't figured out the festival was going on...all Rochesterians are definitely proud of their jazz fest and rightly so.

Below the all imporant and magical Club Pass......




Next year is #10 - hard to believe this event is still so young! Last night of the fest was not so jam packed - saw 2 acts which were really more folky and almost verging on Bjork territory for one....

The most delightful surprises were the Nordic jazz series - Samuel Hallkvist and "Center", Viktoria Tolstoy and especially the fantabulous Palle Mikkelborg - words fail but I do try and sum it up on the Jazz FM blog post....



Highlights - Joe Locke and Kenny Washington and Steve Turre's band, divine vocals of Janet Planet, the wonderfully loopy and danceable hillbilly jazz/bluegrass of the Hackensaw Boys ..more tomorrow and also a posting on my visit to Farm Sanctuary.
