The Blacklights were the featured act at the opening of Jazz in the City this week (along with Will Holton). Eddie Brown and his band have been the go-to group for the Dunk-n-Bright location for years.

Jazz in the City (East): Chill in the Air

Ioana Vintu

Ioana Vintu and Nuf Said were a great fit for the back yard-like setting at Lemoyne Plaza last night. Their return to the Cuse on a cool September evening also provided a fitting diminuendo for the outdoor jazz season.

Jazz in the City (Northside): Keepin it Cool

What a pleasant surprise. This guy played a guitar like  Bobby Womack, dressed like a dapper don, has a movie star name and sounds like the late Spencer Harrison. Colionne was the perfect choice for Jazz in the City's North Salina location.

What a pleasant surprise. This guy played guitar like Bobby Womack, dressed like a real Dapper Don, has a movie star name, and crooned like the late Spencer Harrison. Nick Colionne was the perfect choice for Jazz in the City’s North Salina location in so many ways.

Here’s a sample from a tune played during the Jazz in the City (Westside) show on Thursday, featuring Elan Trotman and Brian Simpson. Their put together band included Rochester musicians Corey Owens (drums) and Carlton Wilcox (bass). They are featured on the clip.

Their synergy was excellent and the overflowing crowd on Park Street showed them much love.

We saw Wilcox when he played here with Frank McComb, and Owens when he played with Danielle Ponder.
