GOING ON AROUND TOWN

Xerox Rochester International Jazz Festival June 22-30, 2018
On Tuesday producers John Nugent and Marc Iacona announced the lineup for this year's festival, the XRIJF's 17th edition, and to music fans, the most wonderful time of the year. The festival runs June 22 through June 30 in downtown Rochester.

Having already announced this year's Kodak Hall at Eastman Theatre headliners - Seal, BozScaggs, Alison Krauss, Bela Fleck & The Flecktones, Lake Street Dive, and Jill Scott - the press shindig focused on the artists performing at the Club Pass venues and the free outdoor stages.

This year's lineup is a broad mix of artists that have played the XRIJF before and rookies who are new to this world-class event. Some of the returning favorites are Stephane Wrembel, The Joe Locke Group, Terell Stafford Quintet, Joey Alexander Trio, Davina and The Vagabonds, Robin McKelle, The Brubeck Brothers Quartet, The Bad Plus, and Junior Brown.

The new blood in the lineup includes Django Bates' Beloved, The Dmitri Matheny Group, Tower of Power, Brian Setzer's Rockabilly Riot, and Vicki Kristina Barcelona Sings the Music of Tom Waits. -FRANK DE BLASE City Newspaper

The F Word. An online column for Frank De Blase to pontificate, ruminate, placate, and salivate. We'll have reviews and previews, we'll discuss trends in local and national music scenes, and we'll try to do it as reverently as possible. Yup. Let's get started.

(Posted By Frank De Blase on 06.11.18)
The F Word: The look, sound, and taste of words
Anthony Bourdain's work revolved around food, but it also revolved around words. Sadly, there are no more words as Bourdain took his own life last week in France.

In eulogizing Bourdain a few days ago, it got me thinking about art, its various disciplines, and their descriptive flexibility. When viewing or listening or reading an artist's endeavor — when you're taking it in, as you do — it becomes apparent that all forms of art share a lot of the same metaphors and hyperbole. Unleash those similarities and you double your pleasure, double your fun.

The F Word: Anthony Bourdain
Anthony Bourdain, the rock star of the culinary world, lived to rile up the curiosity and wanderlust lurking in us all. His opinions were disseminated through loquacious diatribes and sharp-tongued lamentations. Priceless. Beyond his work as a chef, his art was taking others’ art and framing it in an easily understood and simple context. And he was clearly one of the cool breed that roams the earth.

Jeff Spevak, writer.
Welcome to a Chronicle of Culture.

The Story So Far
or, I shook Johnny Cash’s hand.
Yeah, I shook the hand of Johnny Cash. He was a big man. I did a shot of whiskey with Bo Diddley and sang with Tina Turner for about 11 seconds. A Cleveland-area native, I’ve also lived in Texas, Idaho and New York.

I spent four decades wrapped up in newspapers like a market-fresh red snapper. For the last 27 years of that, I was the music critic and entertainment writer at the daily newspaper in Rochester, NY, and in the last decade of that reign collected seven first-place finishes in the New York State Associated Press Association Features Writing Contest. I was published in High Times and Musician magazines. A friend, Scott Regan, published a collection of his drawings of musicians performing at the Xerox Rochester International Jazz Festival, and supplemented them with haikus I wrote at those shows. The book is called Jazz Lines.
