Wild At Heart

It is a big musical week where I am in Rochester, NY as we are 1/3 the way through our Jazzfest. It is a more international and experimental affair that Detroit, for better or worse, but I am having a great time. So far I have seen about 20 different performers including Dr John and Delbert McClinton. Today was a very international day for me seeing artists from Japan (guitarist Hiroya Tsukamoto), Canada (multi-instrumentalist Courtney Pine), Cuba (pianist Alfredo Rodriguez), UK/Sierra Leone (vocalist Michael Mwenso) and Sweden (singer Lina Nyberg) which truly made for a diverse night. I'm looking forward to seeing the Dirty Dozen Brass Band on Thursday which should be a rocking show with that Louisiana flair. I hope you guys have a great week and here are some shows you might want to check out. I am wondering what the Stars and Stripes Festival will be like at Freedom Hill instead of it's usual haunt. Enjoy.
