The Xerox Rochester International Jazz Festival brings in big crowds and big money and it kicks off at 4:30 p.m. today with the Fairport Jazz Band.
Final preparations are underway with crews building the stages and putting up tents. There are five free venues for music.
The headliners this year include Nora Jones, Steve Martin and The Steep Canyon Rangers, Esperanza Spaulding, Diana Krall and Daryl Hall.
New this year -- an iPhone app for the festival. It lists all the performances and has a map of the events. You can create a personalized schedule and set reminders so you don't miss your favorite shows.
