JAZZ FEST INDEX - 2008 Rochester INTERNATIONAL JAZZ FESTIVAL

Joe Locke Quartet at the Rochester Jazz Festival

I wish you could see Joe Locke's pointed white shoes in this shot. The right one was busy pumping his dampening pedal. His Buddy Miles lookalike drummer added the umph to his ""Force of Four" Quartet. Joe went to East High but got his start playing in clubs on the west side of Rochester. This is his third appearance at the Jazz Fest and this time he packed Kilbourn Hall for two shows. Next stop is the Eastman Theatre. - photo by P Doddy - click photo to advance > next
