In This Guide...

    Rochester International Jazz Festival 2006

    Welcome to Jazz Fest
    The 2006 Rochester International Jazz Festival is heavy on greats who are carrying on legacies. McCoy Tyner emerged from John Coltrane's classic quartet.

    Godfather of the revolutions

    James Brown's primal scream still echoes, and always will
    Rock 'n' roll's primal scream can be traced back to James Brown. It came from within this man. And at 73 years old it's still in his soul, in his throat, and in your face.

    Keys to greatness

    Robert Glasper debuts on a legendary label
    Up-and-coming pianist Glasper is one of the few true jazz artists signed to Blue Note in recent years.

    From Brussels with love

    Toots Thielemans embraces America's art form
    At the age of 84 Toots Thielemans has lived through much of the history of jazz. You can hear it in his playing.

    Taking flight

    Phil Woods rides on the wings of Charlie Parker with "Bird Lives"
    When Phil Woods steps onto the Eastman Theater stage at the Rochester International Jazz Festival he will be carrying on a tradition that has enriched his career for six decades. As a young man Woods idolized Charlie "Yardbird" Parker.

    Perpetual motion

    Out of the gate running, McCoy Tyner never stopped
    Talk about starting at the top. McCoy Tyner was barely 20 in 1960 when he was tapped by John Coltrane to become part of arguably the greatest quartet in jazz history.

    Spotlight on

    Asylum Street Spankers Austin, Texas' The Asylum Street Spankers are Tin Pan Alley ragged and beat poet sharp. They're Dixieland with a pre-war jazz jump.

    The cats on stage

    Our guide to picking and choosing at the RIJF
    To take full advantage of all the RIJF has to offer, you have some planning to do. Read this section for short descriptions of nearly every act in the festival.
