JAZZ FEST INDEX - 2008 Rochester INTERNATIONAL JAZZ FESTIVAL

Jae Sinnett Quartet at the Rochester Jazz Festival

Jae Sinnett Quartet at Christ Church was mostly great. They sounded better when the bass played played his double bass and not so good when the keyboardist switched to electric piano. The sax sounded great in this room. Leader/drummer, Jae Sinnett, reminded us how lucky we are to have jazz at our Jazz Fest. He said, "Compare yourselves to fifty other major cities and look at the line-up of their jazz festivals". Here we were worried that the promoters were bringing in too many mainstream music acts. I guess we're doing better than we knew. Thank John Nugent when you see him darting around. - photo by P Doddy - click photo to advance > next
