JAZZ FEST INDEX - 2011 Rochester INTERNATIONAL JAZZ FESTIVAL

Jazz Passengers at Rochester Internation Jazz Festival

Seems kind of clunky putting the word "jazz" in your name. Then again Pete's Rock Band did it with rock. Jazz Passengers works well though because that is exactly how we felt last night at Kilbourn Hall. With trombone, saxes, violin, vibes, bass and drums we took a little trip with these guys. Deborah Harry sang with them for a few years and each band member sings except the guitar player. He just reinvents his instrument on each song. They had recently taken a hiatus from performing and played a beautiful version of Peaches and Herb's "Reunited" to celebrate their return. They make thoroughly entertaining music and were the perfect hosts. - photo by P Doddy - click photo to advance > next
