JAZZ FEST INDEX - 2011 Rochester INTERNATIONAL JAZZ FESTIVAL

Gary Versace Trio at Rochester Internation Jazz Festival

We missed the first night of this year's Jazz Fest but we had a good excuse in that we were vacationing in Spain. We heard from friends that Matt Willson's "Art & Crafts" were good the first night, even getting the crowd to sing along with a Sun Ra tune, so we decided to check out Matt playing drums with Gary Verace at the Rochester Club Ballroom. I particularly liked the vaguely Italian song they did with an accordion but they were a little too tame to kick this off for us so we moved on. - photo by P Doddy - click photo to advance > next
