JAZZ FEST INDEX - 2011 Rochester INTERNATIONAL JAZZ FESTIVAL

The Vitale Brothers  at Rochester Internation Jazz Festival

Tuesday promised to be a better night. The sound samples for the acts at the churches both sounded good. The Rochester Club Ballroom feels like the lounge on a cruise ship but has some real potential. We had about fifteen minutes to spend there with Rochester's Vitale Brothers (on bass, sax and trumpet). The trumpet player was late and explained he had a parking problem. In Rochester? Mike Melito palyed drums. They traded fours on some standards and we moved on. - photo by P Doddy - click photo to advance > next
