Teamed with weather forecasts for the final day today, the RIJF's best bet was the return of guitarist Bill Frisell at Kilbourn Hall. The final day's shows include the Avishai Cohen Trio at Montage, Andy Milne's Dapp Theory at High Fidelity, the Jens Winther European Quintet at the Lutheran Church of the Reformation and the Soul Rebels at High Fidelity. Friday's two shows split the difference from last Saturday's Los Lonely Boys event at the East End last weekend.

Toots was introduced by Ron Stack-man, most recently of the now-departed Big Roots, whose former outfit Bahama Mama once opened for the Maytals, some three decades ago.

Sure, reggae shares a jazz sensibility, not only in the jam sense but in a socially iconoclastic way.

"We're here to walk around and flirt," said Sarah Spade.

"And it works." Lord Byron Don Byron (Cool, a black guy who early in his career was playing Jewish klezmer music!) clearly has a chip on his shoulder. "I haven't been to Rochester since I applied at Eastman, 30 years ago," the New York City native said before playing a note at Kilbourn Hall, packed again. "And I didn't get in." The eclectic-minded Byron has done well enough. Sporting a straw fedora, slightly graying beard, winter-white sport coat, blue jeans and sandals, this is a guy who clearly blows clarinet (Woody Allen he ain't) for a living. Friday he was accompanied by pianist Jason Moran, who played Thursday at Montage, and drummer Billy Hart.

Byron opened his show on tenor sax, which he attributed to an appreciation of Lester Young, the "codifier of American music," he said. But in his wide-ranging curiosity, the 48-year-old jazz player may be well on his way to codifying the American jazz experi ence himself.

When the skittishness faded, as it did on "I'm All Right," it was a bit of a relief. And the power and passion that fans might have expected finally kicked in toward the end of the set, on songs like "Dance Me to the End of Love."
