JAZZ FEST INDEX - 2004 Rochester INTERNATIONAL JAZZ FESTIVAL

Valery Ponomarev

Valery Ponomarev is from Russia and he played with Art Blakey. He told us "that applause was like food for musicians" so the crowd applauded heartily. They were good in a traditional way and Valery was was a natural entertainer. The club pass is the best deal in town. You pop in on a band from another world that you have never heard of and check out a few songs. If you get restless you walk down the street to another act. - photo by P Doddy - click photo to advance > next
