Drone victims were ‘massacred,’ too
Why do we use words like “mass killing” to describe the horror of San Bernardino and Orlando but never use this language to describe 207 Pakistani children killed in drone strikes since 2004? According to the Bureau of Investigative Journalism, the total number of civilians killed in Syria, Yemen, Somalia, and Afghanistan exceeds 1,200. The number of injured civilians in these countries exceeds 4,000. Why do we call the slaughter of innocent civilians in American-led wars “operations,” but call acts of individual rampage in an Orlando nightclub a massacre? As far as I can tell, the only difference between one attack and the other is the size of the guns used and the color of the flag sewn on the uniform of the person who squeezed the trigger. In both cases, the lives of the individual victims matter very little. All that seems to matter is their symbolic worth as representations of concepts such as impurity, evil, communism, capitalism, terrorism, imperialism, heathenism, and barbarism. Isn’t this what collateral damage ultimately means? I really do not care if people find what I have to say offensive. I find terrorism offensive. I find hatred of homosexuals and people of different sexual orientations to be offensive. I find disgracing the prophets’ compassion to be offensive. I find Just War Theory to be offensive. I find violence against children to be offensive. I find assault rifles and drones to be offensive. Killing innocent children with hellfire missiles in Pakistan is no less a sin than the hate crime Omar Mateen committed in Orlando. Either we stop justifying all warfare or we accept the consequences of war completely. GEORGE PAYNE

‘Free college’ isn’t free
Tim Macaluso nailed it with his article “Footing the Free College Bill” (Higher Education, June 22). Many younger people fresh out of college (or going in) seem really confused about what it actually costs to put them through a typical four-year program. There is an economics lesson to be learned for all: There is no such thing as a free lunch. Somebody is paying for it, and it’s not just the 1 percent. Free college for all doesn’t mean the person will be any more motivated to seek work. I also agree that college isn’t right for all and that you can be successful without a traditional four-year degree. Thank you for shining light on the planning issue: many don’t do any personal financial planning, let alone plan for college. This is a huge issue in our society and has many short- and long-term consequences. You choose to go to college, you choose what to study, you choose how hard you want to study, and you choose how motivated you are after graduation to get a job (doing anything). Nobody else should be on the hook to foot the bill for your decisions. DUSTIN BAKER
I’m glad the free college tuition issue is being discussed. My thoughts (at no cost to you): • Free community college simply makes high school a six-year experience, rather than the current four years. • Free public higher education will make private school education even more elitist than it is already. • Free college tuition presumes everyone needs a traditional higher education experience. • Folks value what they have to work for. Paying tuition often makes students think a bit harder about what they are studying and why. College is very expensive, and that needs to change. But the change needs to include more and better education in the trades and less focus on college for all (leaving those who can’t do it out in the cold.) And prospective college students should be provided with more data on what their chosen major offers in terms of jobs after graduation. Entering a journalism program at
a traditional technical college, for example, will not offer many decent employment opportunities, while leaving students with a butt load of debt they can’t afford to pay. KATHRYN QUINN THOMAS
Apartments in the park On Rochester Management’s proposal to replace existing seniorcitizen apartments on private land within Cobbs Hill Park with four-story apartment buildings:
“Unfortunately, they are all going to have to be displaced and find other living. Returning this to parkland would not change the effect on them,” said Chris Stevens from the Upper Monroe Neighborhood Association. Why is this suddenly an option? These apartments house the elderly and have been here for almost 60 years. Suddenly they want to throw the elderly away and knock down their home to make it more of a park? Are you kidding me? Shame on you! LISA WALTER
This is a very rare opportunity to expand the footprint of the park. Senior homes can be placed almost anywhere. Expanding an urban park is almost impossible to achieve. Let’s take advantage of this opportunity now. Move the senior home to one of the many vacant plots of land located throughout the city. BRIAN KEITH
Seriously? Someone can’t build a couple of four-story buildings in the city? What a bunch of crybabies. Move to the suburbs. JOHNNY
The present buildings are not a bad fit for the location, considering their modest size, and especially taking into account their historical background. Putting in two four-story buildings with 104 total units would be totally inconsistent with the location, and have very negative effects on the park (aesthetics and traffic in particular). Thumbs up to Mayor Warren for halting this project. ROCHESTER MUSICIAN

URBAN JOURNAL | BY MARY ANNA TOWLER
Brexit, Trump, and us Couldn’t we have just a small bit of good news in this spectacularly beautiful summer? As if the increasingly troubling pronouncements from Donald Trump weren’t enough, now we have Brexit, roiling the economy around the globe, throwing the British government into turmoil, threatening the future of the European Union, and bolstering separatists in other countries. And while it’s easy to misinterpret the implications of Brexit, it doesn’t seem at all a stretch to think Donald Trump could be right: the populism-based Brexit vote may hint at what we can expect in our presidential election in November. No, Great Britain isn’t the US. But there are parallels between what has been happening in the US and what has been happening in Great Britain and several European countries. Huge issues in all of them: economic inequality, the stress on people who are not affluent, loss of trust in government, and immigration. Those issues – which are connected, of course – are driving right-wing citizen activism and political campaigns in Great Britain, in Europe, and in the US. And the people responding favorably to that activism are not a small group on the fringes of political thought. A powerful, and unsettling, New York Post cover over the weekend shows two clinched fists, one painted with the American flag, one with the British. The headline: “Around the world, voices cry out: Power to the People!” “The people” won in Great Britain. And you can’t help but wonder what country is next – either pulling out of the EU or fracturing internally. Right-wing activists in Sweden, France, and Italy are urging an exit referendum in their countries. The Brexit vote heightened England’s tension with Scotland and Northern Ireland, whose residents voted in favor of staying in the EU and who may try to find a way to stay in the union on their own. Scotland, of course, held a referendum on withdrawing from Great Britain itself in 2014. The referendum failed, but the “leave” support remains strong. And in Spain that year, an independence referendum passed overwhelmingly in the region of Catalonia; it remains part of Spain – over the strong objection of its citizens – because the Spanish federal government says secession would be unconstitutional. The “we’re better off by ourselves” sentiment, in other words, is widespread. And while nativism and xenophobia are not the only factors, they’re often playing a big part. In the US, prejudice and isolationism – hostility toward immigrants, toward
It doesn’t seem a stretch to think that Brexit hints at what we can expect in our presidential election in November.” international trade agreements, toward the United Nations – aren’t new. But right now they have a powerful, highly visible voice in Donald Trump. Some of what Trump’s supporters are upset about is valid – and they’re the same concerns that have attracted so many on the left to Bernie Sanders. Advances in technology have hurt many workers. So have trade deals. And the country did little to offset the damage. And yes, there really is an “elite” – several of them. That’s who is running things – or paying politicians to do it for them – often purely to serve their own personal interests. And their protestations to the contrary, the elites often don’t seem interested in listening to the masses. While Trump lies, makes stuff up, and is clearly out for himself, he has given voice to legitimate concerns. But he has also unleashed an ugly xenophobia and anger that is the antithesis of everything this country has stood for. It may be reassuring to think that the vast majority of Americans will be appalled by the dark side of his campaign. But in Great Britain last week, legitimate fears and darker thoughts combined in a vote that will have an enormous impact on the rest of the world. Despite Britons’ legitimate concerns – about the EU and about some of their own government’s actions – there were plenty of good reasons to remain in the EU. For many Britons, though, fear won. We human beings, wrote one New York Times letter writer, act from our guts, not from reason. That could happen here, in November. rochestercitynewspaper.com

Mayors stand against gun violence
Rochester Mayor Lovely Warren launched “100 Cities to Reduce Gun Violence,” asking at least 100 US mayors to sign a petition at Change.org. Warren launched the campaign in response to the shootings in Orlando and to show that mayors around the country are in solidarity concerning gun violence. Last week, House Democrats staged a sit-in on the floor of their chamber, demanding a vote on several gun bills; Representative Louise Slaughter joined the demonstration.
Campaign starts for library remodel
The Friends and Foundation of the Rochester Public Library kicked off a $1.4 million fund-raising campaign. It’s part of a $3.4 million, multi-phase effort to renovate both Central Library buildings.
Transit board shuffles
The Rochester Genesee Regional Transportation Authority appointed its officers for 20162017: Ontario County representative Geoffrey
Astles is chair, Genesee County representative Paul Battaglia is vicechair, Seneca County representative Edward White is secretary, and Wayne County representative Michael Jankowski is treasurer.
Photonics gets a budget
The state has figured out how it’s going to spend half of its $250 million photonics money. The plan mostly provides for the cost of equipment and physical space needed to set up a key test manufacturing space. The board hasn’t yet decided where that facility will be located.
Trio face gun charges
State law enforcement officials charged a former Henrietta gun shop owner and two of his former employees with selling firearms that violated the SAFE Act. Kordell Jackson, who owned Jackson Guns and Ammo until the shop closed last year, along with Ken Youngren and Joshua Perkins allegedly sold more than 100 prohibited rifles, according to the State Attorney General’s Office. The defendants pleaded not guilty.

Many undocumented farmworkers are worried that a Supreme Court decision will hurt their chance to become legal residents. FILE PHOTO
IMMIGRATION | BY JEREMY MOULE
Immigration ruling creates anxiety, fear The Supreme Court has taken something very powerful away from a few million people: hope. And some of those people live in the Rochester region, many of them working on local farms. Last week, the court deadlocked on a legal challenge to an immigration directive from President Barack Obama. The executive order gave undocumented immigrants a chance to apply for work visas if their children were citizens or legal permanent residents of the US. Texas and 25 other states sued to block it, and because of the Supreme Court tie, a lower court decision to block the order stands.
But the decision means that some undocumented immigrants who raised their children in the Rochester region, and who built lives here, won’t be able to gain legal status through the program as they’d hoped, says John Ghertner, a longtime immigrationrights activist from Wayne County. Many are uncertain whether they’ll be able to stay in the country, he says. “A lot of these parents had high hopes that it was going to change their lives and their children’s lives,” Ghertner says of the blocked program, Deferred Action for Parents of Americans and Lawful Permanent Residents. The decision is causing anxiety and fear among local immigrant
workers, regardless of their status. Among them: students who are in the country legally under a previous amnesty program, Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, and whose status is not jeopardized by the Supreme Court decision, Ghertner says. The ruling is one more blow against a group of people who already feel they are losing support and who have been repeatedly let down by immigration reform failures, he says. “The people who are working on our farms, in our businesses, raising their children here, paying their taxes, are now getting kicked in the teeth,” Ghertner says.

Mayor Lovely Warren agrees with the critics that the development isn’t appropriate for the site, and her administration will ask Rochester Management to revise its plan. It may be hard to come up with a plan that will please everybody, though.
DEVELOPMENT | BY TIM LOUIS MACALUSO
Cobbs Hill project’s quandary The public often has a love-hate response to new developments, even in a city with anemic growth like Rochester. When the proposal involves one of the city’s favorite historic and recreation sites – Cobbs Hill Park – you can count on some strong resistance. That’s the situation with a proposal from Rochester Management, Inc., the nonprofit that owns Cobbs Hill Village, a modest apartment complex for seniors nestled on a parcel carved out from the park on Norris Drive. The company wants to demolish six one-story buildings housing 60 small apartments and replace them with two fourstory buildings. The new buildings would each house a mix of affordable and marketrate apartments. Rochester Management says remodeling the aging buildings isn’t cost-effective. But an array of neighbors, environmentalists, and many of the apartment’s residents strongly oppose the proposal. As protests against the proposal increased last week, Mayor Lovely Warren agreed with the critics that the development isn’t appropriate for the site, and she said her administration would ask Rochester Management to revise its plan. It may be hard to come up with a plan that will please everybody, though.
The Upper Monroe Neighborhood Association says that if the current buildings are demolished, the property –a privately owned parcel within Cobbs Hill Park – should become parkland. The deed to the parcel, the association says, indicates that ownership should revert to the city once the mortgage has been paid off. But city attorney Brian Curran says that in 2009, Rochester Management refinanced the property and the city extended the reversion date to 2041. Rochester Management’s proposal would require removal of some trees, and members of the Sierra Club and Friends of Washington Grove say they’re worried about the 200- to 250- year-old trees in the park’s nearby Washington Grove. Old-growth trees are rare within a city, and the environmentalists say they don’t want a precedent created that might threaten them. The neighborhood association and environmentalists argue that a widely used public park isn’t suitable for housing and that two large buildings and increased traffic will drastically change the park. Expanding the park makes more sense, they say. But Rochester Management is an organization with legal rights, and the property is zoned for high-density residential use. In addition, it has to cover the costs of

operating the apartment complex. Not always mentioned in the discussion about parkland, trees, and building size, though, are the current residents of Cobbs Hill Village. If a new plan calls for replacing or eliminating the buildings, it will displace the residents, at least temporarily. Tenants say that they were told that monthly rent for the less expensive units in the new buildings would be $657. Some of them are paying only in the $300’s now. And some residents say they waited a year and longer for their apartment, and they would would have to reapply for an apartment in one of the new buildings. So they’re trapped, not knowing whether they’ll be able to live in Cobbs Hill Village in the future or should start looking for a new permanent home. Rochester Management didn’t respond requests to for comments.
Superintendent search continues On the heels of a rejection by the person they had tried to hire, Rochester school board members are meeting this week to discuss their continuing search for a superintendent. About seven additional candidates had already been vetted, and board President Van White said on Monday that the board “will not be opening the search up and asking for new people to apply.” Interim Superintendent Linda Cimusz had originally planned to leave at the end of June, but she has agreed to stay with the district through July 2016. White says the board intends to have the position filled by then. The board had selected Ithaca Superintendent Luvelle Brown to fill the position vacated by Bolgen Vargas at the end of last year. But the board had to return to the search last week after it couldn’t reach an agreement with him. No specific reasons were given for the breakdown in negotiations. The superintendent search has been a closed process, which has drawn some criticism. But White has defended the process, saying that it has resulted in a pool of stronger candidates to choose from.

POLITICS | BY JEREMY MOULE
Bello tackles politics and paper Monroe County Democrats have struggled to win countywide seats in recent years. But Adam Bello, the new county clerk, may be the party’s next great hope. In Monroe County, the clerk’s office has served as a stepping stone to higher office, particularly the county exec’s seat; Dinolfo and her predecessor, Maggie Brooks, followed that path. Under state law, New York’s governor appoints a replacement when a county clerk’s position becomes vacant, and in March, Governor Andrew Cuomo appointed Bello to succeed Republican Cheryl Dinolfo, the new county executive. Bello has been pegged as an up-and-comer in the party for a while. He spent close to a decade working government and political staff jobs: he was an aide to state Assembly member Joe Morelle, an administrator for Monroe County District Attorney Sandra Doorley (before she became a Republican), and executive director of the Monroe County Democratic Committee. His work as Irondequoit supervisor – particularly his focus on ousting the less-thansuccessful owner of Medley Centre – boosted his profile. And he’s now in a position where he could be a formidable county exec candidate in 2019, a possibility some Democrats have floated but which Bello says he hasn’t considered. First, however, he has to win the county clerk’s seat in 2016; his appointment is good only through the end of the year. He faces a challenge from Republican Cheryl Rozzi, the Greece town clerk and former clerk of the County Legislature. The GOP will fight hard to get the office back, and it has the better track record in county elections. County Democrats have struggled in recent years with fundraising and rifts between some key members; the party probably won’t be an obstacle to Bello, but it may not have the capacity to provide a lot of support. Three months into the clerk’s job, Bello has begun efforts to help local governments rein in zombie properties, to reopen a downtown Department of Motor Vehicles office, and to improve the department’s use of technology. The clerk’s position already gives him countywide visibility and a platform for talking about county issues, and if he stays in office for a few years, he’ll get more public exposure. That could be an important benefit should he seek higher office at some point. Republicans, of course, don’t want that. The moment Bello was appointed, the GOP went into attack mode. County Republican Party Chair Bill Reilich said that Bello was abandoning the Irondequoit residents who just reelected him as supervisor. (Bello had run unopposed). He also said he hoped Bello wasn’t using the clerk’s office as “a stepping stone for county executive” – an interesting line of attack from Reilich, since Dinolfo and Brooks had made that jump. Reilich’s initial swipe at Bello backfired due to his ill-conceived claim that a wildly popular Irondequoit development, I-Square, was struggling. I-Square’s developers, Mike and Wendy Nolan, vigorously protested the claim, and their many supporters sided with them. The result was that Reilich had sparked a clumsy scandal of his own, one that led Dinolfo to sack one of her deputies and caused four Monroe County Industrial Development Agency board members to quit in protest over the scandal. “It was just such raw politics injecting itself into an economic development project that was popular in town; it 6 CITY

The idea is to make filing different documents – especially legal papers – more convenient and efficient, and to cut down on lines at the office, he said. The county administration’s changes
to the clerk’s office budget may not have been truly political, given Franklin’s explanation that similar changes previously happened in other departments. But it is an election year, and since the Republican administration controls the flow of money to the Democrat-run clerk’s office, the move at least looked suspicious. Bello said that nobody from the administration told him about the change, or why it was necessary at that particular time. It’s a departure from the arrangement Dinolfo and Brooks had as clerk, and from the 2016 budget the County Legislature approved last year, he said. The changes, he argued, should have
been made in the context of the 2017 budget process, which is already underway. “There’s a time and a place for politics,” he said. “There’s going to be an election; let’s not be naive about that. There’s an election that’s going to be in the fall. That’s months away. But there should never be a decision that impacts the operation of the government simply because of a political consideration. That should never be the case. We didn’t do it in Irondequoit, I’m not doing it here in the clerk’s office, and my expectation is they wouldn’t do that across the hallway.” And speaking of the election and political considerations, Bello said he’s focused entirely on the clerk’s office. “I took this appointment at some considerable risk,” he said. “I’d just won a two-year term in Irondequoit and, based on the issues that were really important to me that I was trying to work on in the Town of Irondequoit, I felt like the county clerk’s office was a very good position to be able to attack those issues in a better way.” rochestercitynewspaper.com

Bay Road Baja [ CHOW HOUND ] BY KATIE LIBBY
Dave Jackson comes in to Bay Vista Taqueria (1205 Bay Road) at 7 a.m. each day to start prepping. The ins and outs of running a kitchen are considerably different than what Jackson had been doing for the past 12 years: operating his own web development business — although Jackson worked in the restaurant industry for years prior. He and his wife, Jennifer, were not looking to open a restaurant, but when the Bay Road property that used to house Gyromania became available, they thought they would check it out. Bay Vista opened on June 1. Inspired by the quick service taquerias found in San Francisco, Jackson wanted to open a place where you pop in, get some tacos made with fresh ingredients, and go on your merry way. The menu grew to include more than just tacos, and now has burritos, quesadillas, and salads. All the tacos are made with soft, corn tortillas, although flour tortillas are available upon request. The recipes are carefully researched and tested out in the Jackson home kitchen. “The key
to our cuisine is freshness and making sure everything is seasoned properly,” Jackson says. “There is definitely a California influence.” The house special tacos include a Baja fish taco ($4 each) that features battered and fried cod, sweet cabbage coleslaw, lime-crema, and sliced avocado. The Hawaiian fish taco ($4.50 each) incorporates coriander- and chile-rubbed Mahi Mahi that is then grilled and topped with mango salsa and lime-crema. The burritos (from $7.75 to $9.25) are stuffed with your choice of meat, vegetable, or fish, and then seared on one side. “The response we have gotten from the community has been overwhelming,” Jackson says. He grew up in Penfield, and he, his wife, and two daughters live in Webster. “Sometimes when something you’re not looking for comes to you, you just have to go with it.” Bay Vista Taqueria is located at 1205 Bay Road, and is open Monday through Thursday, 11 a.m. to 9 p.m., and Friday and Saturday, 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. 671-8226.

Sunday brunchers, rejoice! The “Brunch Bill” passed legislation and allows for restaurants, bars, taverns, and special event and sporting venues across the state to start serving the hard stuff at 10 a.m. on Sundays. The bill also aims to support local wineries, distilleries, breweries, and cideries by reducing fees and regulations.

The project was revived by the current curator in charge, Lisa Hostetler, and serves as a time capsule of photos and favorite recipes from the 70’s. The book can be purchased for $29.95 at
eastman.org or at the George Eastman Museum (900 East Avenue). Fuego Coffee has said goodbye to its original location at 167 Liberty Pole Way, and has moved to 45 Euclid Street. With a kitchen in the back, it’s now able to serve light dishes like wraps and sandwiches.
Thai Mii Up (Yes, it is a restaurant) has opened at 1780 East Ridge Road. Qdoba, a fast-casual Mexican chain, has opened a location at 1867 Empire Boulevard, and there is another one planned for a late-summer opening at 255 Westfall Road.
Great Northern Pizza Kitchen has closed its
final location — in the Bruegger’s Bagels in College Town (1400 Mount Hope Avenue).

When we talk about art and creativity, the focus tends to be on the visual or performative genres. But with talent, dedication, and vision, artfulness can be injected into just about anything. Three relatively new businesses on the Rochester food scene, Relish, Fruit Belt Seltzer, and Burwell each offer an artful take on gastronomic pleasures. The people behind Burwell and Fruit Belt Seltzers are artists who are redirecting their skills toward creating consumables, while the owner of Relishâ€™s training in high culinary arts informs his new home-cooked meal delivery service. From inspired flavor pairings that showcase the depth of diverse ingredients to creating a buzz of consciousness about improving neighborhoods through art and small biz, creative skills and vision are imbued into the way these businesses operate. 10 CITY JUNE 29-JULY 5, 2016
Accessible fine dining, delivered Stephen Rees marinades his food in expertise, experience, and the community connections he’s built over time. He paints plates with a vibrant palette of colors and flavors, putting his own creative spin on classic meals and accommodating dietary restrictions in unexpected ways. In May, Rees launched Relish, an online menu of prepared food, from which clients can order restaurant-quality dishes that are easy to reheat at home during a busy week. Rees lists the items he will prepare for the week on his website, where customers order what they’d like for that week, and select the preferred day of delivery. At this time, Rees delivers the food frozen or cold, and the packages come with reheating instructions. The one-man business is geared toward those who have jam-packed lives, with little time to cook and clean, but still want to eat well without paying restaurant prices every day. Because Relish doesn’t have restaurant overhead, Rees can keep his prices relatively low for the style of meal that you get; meals range from $10 to $15, and sides, desserts, and other items range from $4 to $7.50. Relish’s menu is bistro-style with classic French dishes as well as unique ingredient and flavor pairings. For example, one of the menu’s staples is an interpretation of Julia Child’s Boeuf Bourguignon — a rich beef stew with potatoes, carrots, and mushrooms that takes two days to prepare — but Rees also offers creative takes on poached chicken, slow roasted pork belly, pan-roasted fish, pasta, and vegetarian entrees, as well as a variety of add-on sides, appetizers, snacks, and desserts. One recently featured vegetarian entrée, the bright, citrus-and-herb Asparagus Medley, is a carrot soufflé topped with asparagus, toasted quinoa, and mint salad, and finished off with crunchy almonds. A recent special entrée option was a Cauliflower French Toast: a gluten-free, sweet and savory take on breakfast-for-dinner, featuring cauliflower “toast” with wilted greens in a vegan cheese sauce, frizzled onions, and locally sourced maple syrup. Menus change weekly, and Rees only makes a set amount of each dish that is offered, which means some items sell out quickly. Relish also offers a “butler service” option which prompts clients (via phone call, text, or email) about weekly offerings, drawing from Rees’s notes on their preferences and dietary needs. Most of Relish’s ingredients come from vendors at the Rochester Public Market and other local businesses. The food service, Rees says, offers the simplicity and ease of knowing that your meats are coming from a humanely sourced place, the bulk of the produce is coming from local and organic sources, and it’s all the best quality that’s available right now.
Though this is his first business venture, Rees has worked at various restaurants since he was 15 years old, including as a server at 2Vine and Good Luck, three years as the general manager at Lento, and most recently as the general manager at JoJo Bistro and Wine Bar in Pittsford. Rees has an associate’s degree in culinary arts and a bachelor’s degree in restaurant management from the Culinary Institute of America. He also did a number of stagiaires — which are small, month-long chef stints — at New York City restaurants Lutèce, The Modern (of the Danny Meyer group), and Payard. But the bulk of his culinary career was spent at a restaurant in the Berkshires called Aubergine Fine Food and Lodging — the Hillsdale business closed in 2008 — which also featured a high end restaurant. Rees cites this time period as the experience that sparked his passion for the slow food and locavore movements — the restaurant had a large garden on the estate — and, he says, he has a profound respect for farmers. “I lived in the staff quarters,” Rees says. “Basically, you would wake up at 6 or 7 a.m. and go out, cut your lettuces, pick your tomatoes, see what else was around, then prep all day. Service started at 4:30, and you’d work from then until midnight, then go to sleep, wake up, and do it all again. Rees says he’s been trying to get a restaurant going for a while. “When I left Lento, my idea was to get a small, very French, cute wine bar concept up and running.” But securing the ideal location took time, and he lost some of his investors. Over time, Rees whittled his concept down to something he could personally finance. Relish is based in a rented commissary kitchen with cooking ranges, a convection oven, a walk-in freezer, a three-compartment sink, prep areas, a commercial dishwasher, and so on. One of the drawbacks of the current setup is that Rees is a bubbly, delightful human being, and dreams of socializing with customers and community in a restaurant setting. “I’d prefer to have a brick and mortar place, but this is a launching point, so that I can show proof of concept of what I want to be doing, and go from there.” In addition to launching Relish’s online ordering, Rees has been holding pop-up events at various Rochester businesses, to give audiences a chance to sample his offerings. The next pop-up will be held July 21, 5:30 p.m. to 8 p.m., at Rochester Brainery’s new location (176 Anderson Avenue, F109). He also hosts a series of experimental fine dining experiences twice monthly. The next event will take place on July 17 and 18, “with a nod to French cuisine, as the 14th is Bastille Day,” he says.
Relish also offers cooking classes. To learn more, visit relishdelivers.com.

The fruits of a revitalized neighborhood The words “Say I Will & I Can” appear on some of the walls painted by the Mural Arts of Rochester Crew — a group of city youth led by artist Shawn Dunwoody. It pretty much sums up how Dunwoody moves through the world. The MARC initiative’s purpose is to employ community members to create murals that feature “words to live by,” offering inspiration to neighbors and passersby. The project took some of these young artists to paint murals in Philadelphia last summer, and most recently, sent two of them to paint in Brazil. Late last year, Dunwoody’s Dunwoodé Consulting expanded the community empowerment of MARC by teaming up
with Greentopia to create The Fruit Belt Project in the JOSANA neighborhood. The beautification project is named for the area’s fruit-themed street names, like Grape, Orange, Lime, and Orchard. The Fruit Belt Project’s vision includes rebranding the neighborhood, painting murals on area businesses, and initiating selfsustaining projects that maximize community resources to revitalize the area. One of those projects is Fruit Belt Seltzer, which Dunwoody has branded as “a beverage made for building,” and was informally launched this year with tastings at local businesses. continues on page 12

The seltzer concept came about after members of the JOSANA community proposed adding a garden, and The Fruit Belt Project built one for the purpose of growing fruit, naturally. The yield from the Fruit Belt Garden will eventually be used as a natural flavoring for the seltzer, in collaboration with College Club Beverage. Located in one of the buildings on Grape Street that received a mural, College Club has been making Fiz soda and other drinks in the neighborhood since 1922. Dunwoody hired a core of five people from the area and similar neighborhoods, ages 16 through 21, who served as mentors for a group of younger participants. There is a nod to this group in the five seeds of 12 CITY JUNE 29-JULY 5, 2016
the fruit core in Dunwoody’s label design for the beverages. Fruit Belt Seltzer offers a locally-made, sugar-free, preservative-free alternative to ubiquitous sugary beverages. The first drink offered by the company, a refreshing lemon-lime flavor with that pleasingly subtle bite of carbonation, was created using College Club Beverage’s supply of natural flavorings. But Dunwoody and his team are working with Chris Hartman of The Good Food Collective on growing raspberry plants that will yield the source for the seltzer’s flavoring in the near future, and other fruits will follow. In addition to installing murals and the garden, The Fruit Belt Project
has improved sidewalks and installed streetlights, and is collaborating with ROCspot to install solar panels for the garden, and with Seneca Park Zoo to build a butterfly beltway. “I want my core to understand that we’re not just painting, we’re trying to bring attention to an area,” and have people gain a different respect for it, Dunwoody says. The seltzer shows that “a neighborhood project can create a smaller business within a business,” he says. “I’m building it up so that someone in the neighborhood will want to carry it on, take on the rights, and move it along. That’s the strength of Fruit Belt: how creativity can change a community in a physical, financial, and emotional way.” Dunwoody is consulting with others to determine distribution, price, and other details.

Carter Burwell PHOTO BY MARK CHAMBERLIN
Fine artist makes fine confections Since February, Rochester-based artist Carter Burwell — who has worked in film, painting, sculpture, and other media — has created delectable treats for special occasions and custom orders under the Burwell label. She offers such sweet and savory concoctions as chocolate chili caramels; honey vinegar rosemary cashew brittle; beer and bacon toffee; bourbon marshmallows; candied jalapenos; tart cherry and thyme pate de fruit; lemon lavender madeleines; smoked sea salt grapefruit marmalade; and French macarons in a variety of flavors and hues. The list goes on and on. And Burwell caters to specific dietary and allergy needs, using separate utensils and cookware and making non-allergen items on different days than items that have allergens in them, to extra ensure no cross-contamination. Burwell says she’s always thinking about how to “combine, deconstruct, hybridize, or enhance flavors and experiences in food,” she says. While shopping at Asia Food Market recently, she spied a bag of honey powder. “I found myself thinking about biscuits and melons and being on the farm as a kid. I thought about thyme and bourbon and suckers. I wondered if it would melt instantly on my tongue or if it would become a tacky syrup? Could I whip it into butter for a spread or would the cane sugar in it cause a crystallization? What would happen if I mixed it with popping sugar? How would this taste with bacon? Then I broke out of my trance and put the bag back on the shelf.” Burwell’s flights of epicurean fancy have roots that stretch into her childhood. “I spent a lot of my weekends as a kid following my grandfather around his farm in Owensville, Indiana,” she says. She experienced farming produce from planting to harvesting (her grandfather grew much of his own food), and she joined him on hunts for morel mushrooms, and collected wild pecans with her grandmother, who was from South Carolina.
“Saturday and Sunday meals were full of Southern cuisine, from breakfast to dinner, with food from their land or the farmers’ around it,” she says. But the fare in Burwell’s own home contrasted greatly from these fruits-of-the-earth experiences. “My family was lower-class and I grew up in a trailer with cabinets full of canned dinners and not a lot to eat,” she says. “Being raised with that juxtaposition was very impactful to me.” Today, when friends pop by to visit her at home, Burwell is ready to feed them treats or her beverage specialty, jalapeño margaritas. “To me, cooking is more than just feeding a person,” she says, recalling her grandfather frying up potato wedges for her as an afternoon snack, while she waited to be picked up by her parents. “I think it is such an act of generosity and love.” As a youngster, Burwell found herself glued to televised cooking shows, and was determined to one day become a world-renowned chef. But soon, filmmaking took over as the center of her interests. “Suffice to say, I never attended culinary school and kept my love of cooking to myself,” she says. That was until 2008, when she moved to Rochester and began catering treats for 1975 Gallery’s opening receptions. She launched her short-lived but popular business, Bake It or Cleave It, in July 2012, and began to acquire additional culinary jobs for wedding dessert tables and realty showing spreads. And Burwell and Hannah Betts, who joiner her team in 2013, offered a pop-up patisserie at Thread in the South Wedge. Later that year, the operation dissolved — both Burwell and Betts had fulltime jobs, and Burwell decided to finish her BFA in Studio Art at RIT. In the months after graduating in 2015, Burwell left both of her day jobs in order to pursue her creative impulses. With Valentine’s Day approaching, she found herself daydreaming about making candies and treats.
“I offered to make ‘Sweets for your Sweet’ treat boxes and the response was humbling,” she says. “I didn’t expect to have so many amazing people let me know how excited and happy they were that I was doing it. I am pretty sure I smiled for two days straight.” Though she advertises her creations on social media, the bulk of Burwell’s business comes from word-ofmouth. She also takes custom orders. “It’s a one man army over here at Burwell. I make everything myself, design and package it, and deliver or set up,” she says. So far, Burwell has offered themed boxes for Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day, and Father’s Day, which will be the last until October. “Halloween is my favorite holiday, so I thought it would be fun to offer the option of getting someone a ‘Trick’ or ‘Treat’ gift box,” she says. “The ‘Trick’ one will be filled with ghoulishly concocted flavor pairings, lots of spicy things, and some mystery items. The ‘Treat’ one will be filled with spooky sweets and devilish delights.” There will also be one or two special offerings for the holiday season in December. In the meantime, she’s busy with wedding favors (she doesn’t do cakes, though) and some small soirees. “Once I get my garden certified for organic produce, I would like to be able to finally merge my farming and culinary passions together,” she says. “I’d love to open a storefront at some point, but it’s not in the immediate future. With so many amazing neighborhoods and locations in Rochester, it is difficult to decide where to put down some roots just yet,” she says. “There are so many positive and exciting changes on the culinary scene in this city, I am just excited to wait and see what happens.”
Burwell is booked for orders through August. For more information, check out Burwell online at facebook.com/burwellkitchen, follow @burwellkitchen on Instagram, or email firstname.lastname@example.org. rochestercitynewspaper.com CITY 13

Needless to say, music is an integral part of all our lives, from the rock concert T-shirt you proudly wore to school the day after the show to the songs you chose for your wedding. It’s our motivation, and it’s our soundtrack. You can learn a lot about a person simply by hearing what they hear. With this new, occasional Q&A column we’re calling “Off the record,” City will focus on people in the public eye that are outside of the music scene, and the songs, albums, and artists that mean something to them. We thought we’d start big, so for the first installment, we pitched Mayor Lovely Warren a few questions.

JAZZ | CLAY JENKINS
HIP-HOP | KUTT CALHOUN
SOUL | KAT WRIGHT AND THE INDOMITABLE SOUL BAND
Before Clay Jenkins landed at the Eastman School of Music, where he teaches jazz trumpet, he had been on the road with just about every major jazz orchestra. Groups led by Stan Kenton, Harry James, Buddy Rich, Count Basie — you name it, he played in it. And Jenkins still holds a trumpet chair in the Clayton-Hamilton Jazz Orchestra. But the band he’ll be leading in the Faculty Artist series is the school’s all-star Faculty Jazz Quartet, featuring Harold Danko, piano; Jeff Campbell, bass; and Rich Thompson, drums.
For more than a decade, rapper Kutt Calhoun was part of Tech N9ne’s trendsetting record label, Strange Music. Calhoun left Strange Music in 2014 to start his own label, Black Gold Entertainment, and has recently teamed up with Philadelphia-based female emcee Whitney Peyton for the Break for Gold Tour. The pair has crossed the country and will hit Rochester with a lively blend of hip-hop styles. Sincerely Collins, Sixx Oh Seven, The Stalkers, and Malicious Intent will also perform.
There’s Rochester blood coursing through Kat Wright’s Vermont veins, and soul flowing in and out of her rock ‘n’ roll with a serpentine seduction. Some of soul music’s sweet, grand dames belt, shout, seethe, and succumb, while Wright sings gently like a heartache’s apology. It’s funky in spots and beautiful all over. And it hurts a little … like it should.

ARE YOU READY? The 2016 Xerox Rochester International Jazz Festival got off to an exciting, jam-packed start last Friday. Helped by the beautiful, warm weather, Rochester’s downtown was filled over the weekend — in what seemed like one of the most successful openings for the festival — as musicians from around the world shared their craft. In this Jazz Festival Live section, writer Frank De Blase discusses retro style with singer Tia Brazda (who performs Wednesday, June 29, at Montage Music Hall), and you’ll find a recap of the Jazz Festival’s first four days (deadlines

[ INTERVIEW ] BY FRANK DE BLASE
You’d better watch out for this one: by the time Tia Brazda has you wrapped around her finger, you’re gonna look like a sprung spring. The singer is an all-around knockout with her pipes, her moxie, and her pin-up style. She’s a study in jazzy effervescence as the fizz and tingle of her voice skates the line between campy, almost cinematic fun and seductive sophistication. City: What’s your earliest musical memory? Tia Brazda: I was given a recording of
“This Little Light of Mine” at church, and I remember sleeping with that tape under my pillow. Singing came naturally, and I did my first onstage solo performance, also at the church, at age 5. I was very encouraged to sing from an early age, and both of my parents were singers, so they would often bring me along to rehearsals. What are some of your obvious influences?

My favorite jazz singer has always been Ella Fitzgerald, and she was my introduction to the genre. I also really enjoy the playfulness of Peggy Lee. I grew up in a Pentecostal church, so gospel hymns probably had a big impact on me, too. How about some of your not so obvious influences?
Aside from jazz, I grew up listening to a lot of swing revival, neo-soul, trip-hop, and grunge music. I can fall in love with a complicated song as much as a simple one. It’s more about the feeling than anything technical. I love old country music, too. I’m always on the lookout for new music and going to shows. There is so much happening right now that is super exciting … the future of jazz is looking bright.
Brazda’s music swings with bursts of retro energy and classic pizazz, and the cheerful Toronto-based musician is rapidly becoming a global sensation. She’s now in Rochester as part of operation heartbreak — I mean, the Xerox Rochester International Jazz Festival. You’ve been warned. Brazda was gracious enough to field some questions before heading our way. Here’s what we asked, and here’s what she answered. An edited transcript follows.
Where do you get your song ideas?
I get many of my ideas walking — whether on a hike in the B.C. mountains, or downtown in the city. Other times, especially when collaborating, hearing chords triggers me to imagine a visual scenario in my mind. It’s like a little movie — and then I just write the lyrics to match the scene. Describe the ideal setting for your music.
Comfy seating surrounding a dance floor. Swing dancers tend to come out to the shows while some people would simply prefer to sip a drink and just take in the scene. Great acoustics are a must. Really though, if there is a mic, I will sing. What is the most important aspect of your live show?
Music, of course, but I thrive on the emotional connection I have with my audience. Aesthetics are also very important to me; this is showbiz and I love getting theatrical with my outfits. How do you balance the vintage and modern aspects of your sound?
My songs use modern production techniques, but I really appreciate a quality arrangement with an array of instruments: horns, strings, etc. I find a lot of the mainstream music of
today is overloaded with plug-ins and I can’t even hear the instruments — that is definitely not for me. What’s a dream collaboration or duet you’d like to do?
Chris Isaak. Not only do I love his voice and music but I met him once, years ago, and he seemed like such a nice person. What are you most proud of?
Not giving up on singing and songwriting in spite of the fact that it has often seemed beyond impractical. What keeps you going?
Music, great relationships, and traveling bring me so much joy that I feel very little need for much else these days.

JOHN MOONEY AND BLUESIANA, AND GRACE POTTER
It was crazy, I tell ya. People were everywhere in the beautifully controlled chaos. Opening day: Jazz Fest 2016. Be still my beating heart as it keeps time with the rat-a-tat-tat of my rickety keyboard as I type away this report from the frontline. John Mooney and Bluesiana kicked off my musical intake on the Gibbs Street stage with a solid body punch of his slide-driven, electrified guitar. Mooney and crew, which included Rochester’s top cat on the bottom end, our man just back from Amsterdam, Brian Williams on the galloping bass. But alas, this show wasn’t on my list of things to cover, so I regrettably dragged my ass to see Grace Potter. Well ho-ly shit, Batman, what a knockout show. My regret melted away and was replaced by a spellbound enthusiasm that came on like a rash. Potter came out whipping her hair in a frantic, follicle frenzy that would have made an astronaut toss his cookies. This was nothing like when I saw her with The Nocturnals at Water Street Music Hall a few years back. Then, Potter was more ensconced in somewhat lengthy jams. But not this show. And though it was like following a pinball on stage, it was impossible to take your eyes off of Potter, unless you took some time to look at the stage right guitarist who served
up some bawdy picked licks in response to Potter’s siren call. By the time we made it out of the Eastman Theatre, Mooney had the massive crowd shaking their collective moneymaker in a sweaty display of hell bound joy. — BY FRANK DE BLASE
The Scofield-Lovano Quartet got right down to business at Xerox Auditorium Friday night. The two stars — guitarist John Scofield and saxophonist Joe Lovano — walked onto the stage, along with the excellent rhythm section of Ben Street (bass) and Bill Stewart (drums), and launched into Lovano’s “Symbolism.” Scofield played gorgeously, even slipping into some Wes Montgomery-style octaves, while Lovano let loose torrents of notes from his tenor saxophone. Throughout the set, Scofield and Lovano would begin and end tunes with harmonized heads, played in the manner of a sax and trumpet horn section. Every tune, including Scofield’s “Museum” and “Slinky,” and Miles Davis’s “Budo,” was filled with great melodic ideas that would hang in the air during improvisations by the two leaders. Lovano and Scofield played off of one another nicely, each bringing decades of musical personality to the stage. The set was tight, allowing for only one solo each for Street and Stewart, but both were excellent throughout. — BY RON NETSKY
About three-quarters of the way through their energetic set at Kilbourn Hall, Tommy Smith aimed his tenor saxophone right into the open lid of Makoto Ozone’s grand piano. The sounds that came out for the next several minutes were magical. Smith, who had a gorgeous tone and a voluminous dynamic range, played clusters of notes that did far more than create compelling melodies. Each phrase he played also added up to a chord that would gradually build in the piano’s improvised echo chamber and resonate for five seconds or so — enough time for Smith to begin to create the next note cluster. After the piece, much of the audience gave a rare mid-set standing ovation. Each member of the duo had referred to the other as a genius during the show, which is kind of a dangerous thing to do; at the very least it sets a high standard. But with Ozone’s dexterity and adventurous exploration at the piano and Smith’s ability to shape his saxophone’s sound from low register growls to beautifully controlled high squeaks, it was hard to argue with either of them. — BY RON NETSKY
I always sit on the left side at Hatch Recital Hall so I can see the hands of the pianist as they roam over the keyboard. Music is often both a visual and aural experience and Jon Ballantyne’s hands did not disappoint. While his left hand held down the fort, maintaining complicated bass lines, his right broke free, spidering frenetically over the keys. As free as it seemed, there was never a hint of a note gone astray; Ballantyne was in complete control. His playing was so strong and his set so varied, the hour went by quickly. On a medley of “Monk’s Mood” and “Round Midnight,” two classics by the great Thelonious Monk, Ballantyne not only traversed Monk’s quirky melodies wonderfully, he filled many of the spaces in between the lines with his own quirky runs and flourishes. — BY RON NETSKY

Junior Brown. PHOTO BY FRANK DE BLASE
Erykah Badu took a wrong turn at Albuquerque and was late by a couple hours, and I sure as hell wasn’t going to miss Junior Brown at Anthology. So I forwent Badu and got down with Brown. After meeting the man backstage and pressing the flesh, I settled in to an amazing show full of deceptively simple rhythm and time signature shifts by Brown and his able band. I don’t know
which half I like hearing from more: the guitar or the steel guitar. Both are part of his double-necked Guit-Steel — the instrument equivalent to conjoined twins. Brown switched off between the two liberally, with some string bending hi-jinx, and played with the low string tuner peg so it would plunge multiple octaves that almost came close to his beautiful baritone. Speaking of his voice: the ghost of Ernest Tubb lives there. — BY FRANK DE BLASE

Okay, so I’m paraphrasing here, but my “what for,” “why is,” and “when by” of jazz was serendipitously solved by guitarist John Abercrombie. During his 10 p.m. slot to a packed and lively crowd at the Montage Music Hall, he said, “I don’t like to know where I’m going. That’s why I play jazz.” But clearly Abercrombie, his organist, and his drummer knew exactly where they were going even when they opted to send the soundman to get some music from their dressing room after their first Irving Berlin number. Abercrombie’s playing was big and sweet with its notes not so much fat as they were chubby and slick. But honestly, it was overshadowed by the organ in spots. ’Twas pure and beautiful all at the same. — BY FRANK DE BLASE

Just about every pianist I’ve seen at Hatch Hall over the years has been excellent, but Eldar is in a class by himself. He’s the Vladimir Horowitz of jazz, or for the younger generation, let’s say Lang Lang. The point is, Eldar is one of the world’s greatest pianists — and we had him all to ourselves tonight. Eldar, whose last name is Djangirov, was recognized as a prodigy when he moved from the former Soviet Union to Kansas at 10 years old. In his teenage years, he was talked about with the same sense of awe that Joey Alexander now enjoys. Now 29, he has developed into an absolutely thrilling performer. He started his set with a frenzied rendition of “A Night in Tunisia,” in which snippets of melody would float over his impressionistic foundation. (Eldar revisited this mode of improvisation throughout the set.) He began The Beatles tune “Blackbird” more like a woodpecker, pecking at one note repeatedly while building up the chords and melody around it. And he actually slowed down for a while on “Willow Weep for Me,” but it didn’t last for long as his right hand took off on another flight. Eldar played other standards, like “Take the A Train” and a player-piano-inspired version of “Body And Soul,” but my favorite moment was when he took on a Bach prelude, but not without providing his own wildly imaginative variations. — BY RON NETSKY
The three other musicians in Pedrito Martinez’s quartet at Kilbourn Hall waited until the second to last tune to leave the stage and let Martinez demonstrate why

he is regarded as one of the hottest AfroCuban percussionists working today. With four conga drums in front of him, Martinez filled the hall with wave after wave of complex polyrhythms. Throughout the set, he had shown his prowess as an expressive singer who got his songs across despite the language barrier — although attempts to involve the audience in singing part of a tune didn’t quite work. The songs were infectious and the group often used four-voice harmonies. But Martinez’s quartet played one of the loudest sets I’ve ever heard in Kilbourn. The group obviously wanted it that way, complimenting the soundman and even giving him a shout out. I controlled the volume with the earplugs I always have with me, but the audience didn’t seem disturbed by it. — BY RON NETSKY
As I proclaimed in the hallowed pages of City last week: The Majestics are back, Jack. The band celebrated its history with a bouncy set of serious reggae in a packed Little Theatre. It was hard to get up and dance when the size of the place served up the sardine treatment. Consequently it was a laid back, chill affair. Just when you thought the set couldn’t possibly get any better, The Majestics invited up a few Prime Time horns for some seasoned and salacious sass and brass. What a solid show; I can’t wait to see them again. — BY FRANK DE BLASE

Lizz Wright had the sold-out Harro East Ballroom crowd in the palm of her hand Monday night. Maybe it was because, with the room’s large windows, there is no way to turn the house lights off while it’s still light outside. She could see the audience, so Wright engaged with it throughout her show. She said she hadn’t played two shows a night since she was in her 20’s, and the band’s attitude toward the second set was “let’s just scrape the bottom and see what’s left.” There was a lot left. Wright’s voice is gorgeously smoky and her stage movements, gestures, and facial expressions are just right. She performed songs from her recent album, “Freedom & Surrender,” and even though they weren’t as familiar as her covers, they went over beautifully. Between tunes, Wright spoke about what she was trying to say in the lyrics: the stories mostly involved her upbringing in a strict church atmosphere with her father, a minister. But it was some of her personalityinfused covers that got the biggest responses from the audience. Her renditions of Neil

Young’s “Old Man” and Gladys Knight’s “I’ve Got to Use My Imagination” (written by Gerry Goffin and Barry Goldberg) were definite crowd pleasers. — BY RON NETSKY
For me, the sound in Christ Church has sucked, and it’s sucked for years: relegated to a kick drum-induced boom-a-thon and vocals that were so reverb-drenched that they sounded backwards. It’s never been the soundman’s fault; it’s just the big room. Well I’m here to tell ya, that’s all changed with Gwyneth Herbert’s positively riveting performance. She was playfully curious with a ukulele and kazoo while not coming on too child-like — it was exploratory but not lost in space. And the woman has the range of a Theremin, her ultra-high notes pinging off the ceiling and dislodging pieces of the Word of God that have been stuck up there since Easter. Of the let’s say top 10 singers I’ve ever seen, Herbert is two of them. — BY FRANK DE BLASE
MOSCOW JAZZ ORCHESTRA
Over at Xerox Auditorium, the 16-piece Moscow Jazz Orchestra walked onto the stage wearing suits with red, white, and bluestriped ties. But that was nothing compared to the obvious immersion of the group’s members in American jazz. Vladimir Putin may be doing some saber rattling, and a new Cold War may be on the horizon, but the Moscow Jazz Orchestra is as American as apple pie. The Orchestra is led by Igor Butman (who plays with his quartet Tuesday, 6 p.m. and 10 p.m., at Montage) and he was every bit the showman. Like Benny Goodman or a leader from the classic big band era, Butman would rise from the reed section and wind his serpentine saxophone solos over and around the sound of the whole band. But that’s not to say the group was retro in any way. The music ranged from a composition based on a Russian folk song to an arrangement of Billy Strayhorn’s “The Intimacy of the Blues” — the treatments were all contemporary.

Russell Malone (Hard bop jazz) Maybe a
decade ago, I was cruising along listening to the car radio, when the most irresistible tune I’d heard in a long time came on. It featured an electric guitar playing a catchy but sophisticated, soul-inflected melody. When the DJ came on, he said it was “Sweet Georgia Peach” by Russell Malone, and I’ve been hooked ever since. Malone’s first job in jazz was a stint with legendary organist Jimmy Smith. He moved on to Harry Connick Jr. and Diana Krall before going out on his own. I can’t wait to watch his fingers fly over the fret board at Kilbourn. 6 p.m. and 9 p.m.; Kilbourn Hall; $35 or a Club Pass; vervemusicgroup.com/ russellmalone

Nikki Hill (R&B, rock ‘n’ roll) The reigning queen of rock ‘n’ roll, Nikki Hill picks up where Ruth Brown and Etta James left off. You’ve just gotta hear this lady jive and wail while her hubby, Matt Hill, strangles his guitar like Tarheel Slim. 7:30 p.m. and 9:30

Jumaane Smith (Straight-ahead jazz)
Trumpeter Jumaane Smith is a force. The guy is musically flexible, has played with a laundry list of jazz and pop greats — Natalie Cole, Ravi Coltrane, Stevie Wonder, Michael Buble — and got the stamp of approval from Wynton Marsalis. If you love trumpet, or want a jazz set that’s going to be dynamic and rich, Smith at Max of Eastman Place is your concert Wednesday.

Chris Botti (Pop jazz) I’m not big on pop
Claudia Quintet (Progressive jazz) As jazz
has blossomed over the past 100-plus years, different strains of the music have emerged. One of those branches is a form of jazz that fuses free-form improvisation with an almost classical approach to composing and arranging. Since moving to New York in the early 1990’s, drummer John Hollenbeck has gained a reputation for his adventurous work in this genre. His group, The Claudia Quintet, plays Hollenbeck’s avant-garde-leaning tunes and features top players like Drew Gress, bass; Matt Moran, vibraphone; Chris Speed, clarinet and saxophone; and former Rochesterian Red Wierenga, accordion.

It’s at once immediately accessible, fun, thoughtprovoking, and deep. 8:30 p.m. and 10 p.m.;

FRIDAY, JULY 1
Helen Sung (Straight-ahead jazz) Ever since I heard pianist Helen Sung’s early albums, “Helenistique” and “Sungbird” a decade ago, I have been a fan of her lyrical keyboard style. Over the last two decades, Sung has performed with a Who’s Who of jazz, including Wayne Shorter, Ron Carter, and Clark Terry. She also won the Kennedy Center’s 2007 Mary Lou Williams Piano Competition, and has appeared on Marian McPartland’s Piano Jazz. But put the resume aside and just listen to this woman play. It won’t take long to understand why she has emerged from a crowded field of pianists. She’ll also be performing with her quartet Saturday at Montage. 5:45 p.m. and 7:45
p.m.; Hatch Recital Hall; $30 or a Club Pass; helensung.com — BY RON NETSKY
Gregg Allman (Classic rock) One of the
godfathers of Southern rock and blue-eyed soul — not to mention his relationship
Find Your Place! Apartments • Condos • Houses • Lofts •
with Cher — Gregg Allman and his slide guitar genius brother, the late Duane Allman, formed The Allman Brothers out of their earlier garage band, The Allman Joys. The band was one of the saviors of the Muscle Shoals sound, which they packed — and Allman, at 68, still packs — into their legendary, incendiary shows. 8 p.m.; Kodak Hall at Eastman Theatre; $65-$85; greggallman.com — BY FRANK DE BLASE
Red Baraat (Brooklyn bhangra) The music
of Red Baraat is rooted in joy — a baraat itself is a groom’s procession during North Indian weddings. And the eight-piece band delivers it in a high-energy blast of North Indian bhangra, D.C. go-go, jazz, hiphop, and New York City edge. While the percussion and rhythms of India drive the boat, everything is glued together by funky horns and a little rockin’ guitar. 5:30 p.m. and 7:15 p.m.; Harro East Ballroom; $30 or a Club Pass; redbaraat.com — BY JAKE CLAPP
SATURDAY, JULY 2
Dizzy Gillespie Afro-Cuban Experience
(Afro-Cuban jazz) Once you catch a glimpse of trumpeter Freddie Hendrix’s bent-bell trumpet aimed at the sky, there is no doubt about who he is emulating. No one did more to bring Afro-Cuban music to the United States than the brilliant trumpeter Dizzy Gillespie, who distinguished himself with his incomparable technique, his wonderful style, and that funny looking bent trumpet. The Dizzy Gillespie Afro-Cuban Experience pays tribute to that legacy by playing vintage arrangements of tunes like “Manteca” that sound as fresh today as they did when Gillespie and his band played them decades ago. 6 p.m. and 9 p.m.; Kilbourn Hall; $35 or a Club Pass; inadittke. com/dg-ace — BY RON NETSKY
Flat Earth Society (Progressive jazz
orchestra) By playing the Lutheran
Church, each artist is given a pass to go “out there.” It’s the land of the free, the home of the weird. It is a fitting stage for the Belgian big band of innovative madness that is so into its own version of the truth you’ll leave believing you could seriously walk off the edge. 7:30 p.m. and 9:30 p.m.; Lutheran Church; $30 or a Club Pass; facebook.com/flatearthsoc — BY FRANK DE BLASE
Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue (New Orleans rock) There are a lot of reasons to catch this show: it’s free; it’s at the new Midtown Stage; Trombone Shorty has been a consistent Jazz Festival favorite and is sure to bring the energy; and simply, the band rocks. Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue has figured out a way to distill down the best of New Orleans music — from the brass bands and jazz outfits joyously playing in the streets to classic NOLA funk and rock — put its own flair on everything, and then throw a party. 9 p.m.;

SPECIAL EVENT | INDEPENDENCE DAY CELEBRATIONS
As we’ve come to expect, the Rochester area will be full of Independence Day celebrations this weekend. There are far too many to list in one sitting, but below are two of Rochester’s more unique takes on celebrating the Fourth of July beyond the traditional fireworks and parades. And the City of Rochester will host its annual firework show on Monday, July 4, with performances by the Judah Sealy Band and the Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra (Ward Stare conducting). Music will take place on the Main Street Bridge, and the fireworks start at 10 p.m. cityofrochester.gov.
Independence Day at GCVM
Along with celebrating its official 40th birthday, the Genesee Country Village and Museum will host an historical accurate Independence Day celebration with practices and pageantry that resemble those of the early-19th century. The festivities include the firing of a 100-pound anvil and music that recalls the 1876 grand parade. Family events such as egg tosses and a pie eating contest will be hosted throughout the day, and there will be a reading of the Declaration of Independence and 50 new American citizens officially sworn in. GCVM’s Independence Day Celebration takes place 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Monday, July 4, at 1410 Flint Hill Road, Mumford. Tickets are $12-$20. www.gcv.org.

Sodus Bay Lighthouse Museum’s Third of July

The lighthouse 5K run will follow, and the Gap Mangione Big Band will play a free outdoor concert. The festivities will wrap up with the Village of Sodus Point setting off a firework show at the pier, which is viewable from the museum’s lawn.

ART | “SOMETHING, SOME THING”
Mona L. F. Oates’s “Something, Some Thing” exhibition showcases her paintings over the last five years of an organic world that never stops growing. Her surreal works seem to jump into the 3D world even though they’re oil paintings on panel. Oates was born in Germany and moved to the United States in 2010 after traveling the world, and those experiences are expressed in her work, where themes around culture and identity lose their boundaries and origin. The “Something, Some Thing” exhibition will open on Friday, July 1, at Maker’s Gallery and Studio, 34 Elton Street. An opening reception will be held 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. Normal gallery hours are 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., Tuesday through Sunday. Admission is free.

SPECIAL EVENT | SOLAR S’MORES
ART | “PRIMARY CAUCUS”
ROCspot is using solar ovens to throw a s’mores party to kick off a schedule of educational events in reaction to the National Week of Making (which took place June 17-23). ROCspot is a non-profit organization that educates the public about solar power while slowly making our city greener. The organization has gained more than 20 partners within the last year, and has already made 25 solar installations around the city. For the upcoming free event, ROCspot will help attendees build solar ovens which will then be used to roast s’mores — all materials and ingredients provided.
Though drawings may not be the first thing that comes to mind when talking about presidential primaries and caucuses, artist Ray Ray Mitrano has created an exhibition which might change that perspective. “Primary Caucus,” which focuses on the 2016 presidential election, not only includes drawings but also live performance based on election-based questions and a lawn picnic with a lot of discussion. During the craze of this year’s election, Mitrano has been working to translate all of the media attention, party affiliation, territories, and voter eligibility into art. Based on a “baffling and convoluted” process, Mitrano says, the art series attempts to make everything a little simpler and more accessible.
The ROCspot s’mores celebration will take place Wednesday, June 29, at Cobbs Hill Park, near the pond on Culver Road. 5:30 p.m. More information can be found at rocspot.org. — BY BIANCA NOLT

“Swiss Army Man” (R), DIRECTED BY DANIEL KWAN AND DANIEL SCHEINERT OPENS FRIDAY, JULY 1 [ REVIEW ] BY ADAM LUBITOW
Reports of mass walkouts accompanied the first screenings of “Swiss Army Man” when it premiered earlier this year at the Sundance Film Festival. It immediately gained a reputation as “the farting corpse movie.” That’s a reductive (although not inaccurate) representation of the film. Depicting a guileless bromance between a man and a corpse, many festival-goers weren’t prepared for its mix of the fancifully macabre and the scatological. Directed by Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert (jointly known as “The Daniels”), it’s an undeniably strange little film that’s part “Cast

Away” and part “Weekend at Bernie’s,” filtered through the sensibilities of Michel Gondry and Terrence Malick. Paul Dano plays Hank, a young man shipwrecked on a small, deserted island off the Pacific Northwest. As the film opens, Hank has long since given up hope and is about to hang himself. But he’s distracted from his grim task when he spots a human figure washed up on shore. The body (Daniel Radcliffe continuing his trend of fascinating post-Harry Potter career choices) turns out to be a corpse, completely lifeless save for an excessive case of gas. Hank dubs him Manny. In short amount of time Hank is soon riding Manny’s body like a fart-powered jet ski (no spoilers, this happens before the opening credits even start) until they make landfall and are one step closer to home. As the title might suggest, Hank gradually discovers a plethora of Manny’s unexpected talents, which include, but are not limited to, vomiting up drinking water, rigor mortis-assisted kung fu chopping action, shooting projectiles from his mouth at alarming speeds, and an erection that appears to point the way home. Strapping this “multipurpose tool guy” to his back, the unlikely

pair trek through the wilderness, working together to confront whatever obstacles present themselves. Along the way, Manny and Hank have conversations about life and love and what it means to truly be alive. All this can come across as infantile, and I’m not about to argue otherwise, but it’s endearing so long as you can stomach the non-stop barrage of various bodily functions. The film is more sweet and sentimental than its premise might suggest, and that sincerity is its greatest asset. Your stomach for the material will depend on how amusing you find constant flatulence: this is after all, a movie that’s basically 60 percent farts. But those farts mean something, man. The film’s making a point about hiding our true selves for fear of being uncomfortable. “My body is disgusting!” Manny laments at one point, but the film argues that those farts, poop, and boners are a sign of our humanity in all its nauseating glory. It should be noted that sound designer Andrew Twite is able to create an impressive variety of tone and pitches, ensuring that those farts never grow old. It’s the type of work you’ll never see honored on Oscar night, but absolutely should be. An existential gross-out comedy, the heart of the film is the oddly touching relationship between Hank and Manny. The chemistry between Dano and Radcliffe is disarmingly sweet. Radcliffe wrings unexpected life out of playing a corpse; whether gliding through the ocean propelled by farts, or discovering the joys of public transportation, you never doubt his commitment for a

second. Despite playing a dead guy, it’s the showier of the two roles, and the young actor makes the most of it. Meanwhile Dano’s earnestness allows us to empathize with a man who’s obviously broken. The pair are spurred on their journey home by a desire to connect with a woman (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) glimpsed in a photo on a dying cell phone. In contrast to most stories that ask audiences to root for a loveable weirdo pining after a woman, the Daniels don’t let us ignore how creepy the situation actually is. Hank seems to have a genuine mental instability, but Dano’s earnestness keeps him from coming across entirely like a dangerous psychopath. The chant-heavy score (from Manchester Orchestra’s Andy Hull and Robert McDowell) suits things perfectly, alternating between the melancholy and the ecstatic, and Hank and Manny occasionally join in to sing along with the melodies. One of the weirdest films released this year (and that’s saying a lot since the film is on the heels of “The Lobster”), “Swiss Army Man” occasionally goes overboard with fairy tale whimsy, but anytime the film threatens to turn maudlin, Manny lets another one rip. The plot proceeds toward a genuinely unexpected ending, which in fairness is probably a little darker than the film that precedes it can support. But even that unexpected divergence seems appropriate for an unexpectedly remarkable film that bucks expectation at every turn.

Brick Beechwood Beauty 1315 Culver Road Since its very beginning in the early twentieth century, spurred by the annexation of new land from the town of Irondequoit and the expansion of the streetcar system, Beechwood has remained a diverse neighborhood filled with modest well-built houses on tree lined streets.
Your business belongs at 110 Halstead Street in a well-located East Side address.
2,487 square feet, ground floor, 20-car parking at the door. Let’s talk!
In 1914 Daniel Verwey and his wife, Bertie, bought a lot along Culver Road and began construction on their stately brick Foursquare home. Daniel was a mason by trade and likely laid the brick and stone of the house, carriage house, and unique landscape features himself. In 1930 Daniel sold his house to its infamous second owner, Pasquale Amico. Patsy was allegedly the head of the Rochester mafia from the 1920s-1940s. During this time he had many brushes with the law including operating a speakeasy at 55 South Avenue, bootlegging, and being a prime suspect in two murder cases of possible business associates. From the street, the elegant rubble stone walls and planter piers frame your approach to the broad proportions of the all-brick exterior of the home. A full width front porch with massive brick columns provides cover to the substantial oak and glass paneled front door. Passing through the tiled vestibule with leaded glass sidelights, the grand interior impresses with original hand stenciled wall fabric, gleaming oversized oak trim and floors, and large double-hung windows lighting every room. The main stair wraps up overhead in the hall with a convenient powder room to the side and a stained glass window at the landing. Through a grand arch the living room features leaded glass built-in bookcases
flanking a broad brick hearth and oversized window bay. A wood colonnade gives way to the formal dining room with a beamed ceiling, fauxbois stone walls, and window bay. A separate breakfast room has a unique free-standing safe sold by the H. H. Warner Company in the 1880s. The kitchen has plentiful newer modern cabinetry and provides access to the butler’s pantry, basement stair, and rear porch. The second floor has three large bedrooms and a period shared bathroom arranged around a central hall with linen closet. All bedrooms are outfitted with original light fixtures and good sized closets. The master bedroom has an enormous full-width private rear porch great for a breezy summer afternoon. The attic was originally finished with two additional bedrooms and separate storage areas. The basement is large with new mechanicals, several storage areas, a root cellar, and a finished room with a utilitarian fireplace. The carriage house is three bays wide with a rear carriage door, front automobile door, and walk-up loft. This remarkable and intact home, with 3,050 square feet, is listed at $149,900.

There are government agencies, legal aid entities and other nonprofit organizations that you may contact for information about foreclosure while you are working with your lender during this process. To locate an entity near you, you may call the toll-free helpline maintained by the New York State Banking Department at 1-877-BANKNYS (1-877-226-5697) or visit the Department’s website at www. banking.state.ny.us.

Fun [ NEWS OF THE WEIRD ] BY CHUCK SHEPHERD
Getting Fannies in the Seats
The Bunyadi opened in London in June for a three-month run as the world’s newest nude-dining experience, and now has a reservation waiting list of 40,000 (since it only seats 42). Besides the nakedness, the Bunyadi creates “true liberation” (said its founder) by serving only food “from nature,” cooked over fire (no electricity). Waiters are nude, as well, except for minimal concessions to seated diners addressing standing servers. Tokyo’s Amrita nude eatery, opening in July, is a bit more playful, with best-body male waiters and an optional floor show — and no “overweight” patrons allowed. Both restaurants provide some sort of derriere-cover for sitting, and require diners to check their cellphones at the door.
Milwaukee’s WITI-TV, in an on-the-scene report from Loretta, Wisconsin (in the state’s northwest backwoods), in May, described the town’s baffling fascination with “Wood Tick Racing,” held annually, provided someone finds enough wood ticks to place in a circle so that townspeople can wager on which one hops out first. The “races” began 37 years ago, and this year “Howard” was declared the winner. (According to the organizers, at the end of the day, all contestants, except Howard, were to be smashed with a mallet.)
Government in Action
The Department of Veterans Affairs revealed in May that, between 2007 and last year, nearly 25,000 vets examined for traumatic brain injury at 40 VA facilities were not seen by medical personnel qualified to render the diagnosis — which may account for the result that, according to veterans’ activists, very few of them were ever referred for treatment. (TBI, of course, is the “signature wound” of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.)
- For the last 17 months, Stan Larkin, of Ypsilanti, Michigan, has gone about his business (even playing pickup basketball) without a functional heart in his body — carrying around in a backpack the “organ” that pumps his blood. Larkin, 25, was born with a dangerous heart arrhythmia, and was kept alive for a while with a defibrillator and then by hooking him up to a washing- machine-sized heart pump, leaving him barely mobile — but then came the miraculous SynCardia Freedom Total Artificial Heart, weighing 13 pounds and improving Larkin’s quality of life as he endured the almost-interminable wait for a heart transplant (which he finally received in May). (An average of 22 people a day die awaiting organ transplants in the U.S.) - An ordinary green tree frog recently injured in a “lawn-mowing accident” in Australia’s Outback was flown about 600 miles from Mount Isa to the Cairns Frog Hospital. CFH president Deborah Pergolotti spoke despairingly to Australian Broadcasting Corp. News in June about how society underregards the poor frogs when it comes to rescue and rehab — suggesting that “there’s almost a glass ceiling” between them and the cuter animals. - News You Can Use: When they were starting out, the band Guns N’ Roses practiced and “lived” in a storage unit in Los Angeles, according to a book-review essay in the May 2016 Harper’s magazine, and “became resourceful,” wrote the essayist. Wrote bass player Duff McKagan in one of the books reviewed: “You could get dirt-cheap antibiotics — intended for use in aquariums — at pet stores. Turned out tetracycline wasn’t just good for tail rot and gill disease. It also did great with syphilis.”
[ LAST WEEK’S SOLUTION ON PAGE 39 ]
[ LOVESCOPE ] BY EUGENIA LAST ARIES (March 21-April 19): Physical encounters will not live up to your expectations. Use your intellect and finesse when it comes to affairs of the heart. Physical innuendoes will send the wrong impression and message. A serious attitude will bring a serious response when dealing with a relationship with someone special. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Share your feelings with someone you love, and it will turn into plans that will lead to an adventure and fond memories. What you start now will build into something concrete. A change in the way or where you live will entice you to take on more personal responsibility.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Don’t give in to someone pestering you to get involved if you don’t want to. Enjoy your freedom until you meet someone you feel has the qualities you expect a partner to have. Bide your time and have fun, but don’t lead anyone on intentionally. CANCER (June 21-July 22): You’ll attract someone who is irresponsible or unpredictable. You will be taken in by the seemingly adventurous lifestyle someone lives. Observe before you participate in something you know little about. Ask questions, or you may find you have stepped into a commitment without realizing the consequences.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): You will appreciate a change of atmosphere. Make plans to attend something that will require you to think about what you want out of life. A retreat or spending time with people from different backgrounds will lead to a decision regarding love, lifestyle and with whom you want to spend your life. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Make your actions count when dealing with a love relationship. It’s important not to be critical. If you want someone to love you back, encourage him or her to do so. How you treat the one you love will determine how you will be treated in return.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Mental stimulation will be what captures your attention and your heart. If someone cannot keep up to you intellectually, it won’t be long before you lose interest in the physical attraction that drew your attention in the first place. Don’t settle for a showpiece when it’s a partner you need. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Romance is the name of the game this week. Your desire to try new things will lead to an interesting encounter with someone as experimental and passionate as you. An encounter with someone from a different background or who you meet in an unusual way or place will capture your heart.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Your vision will be clouded when it comes to love. What you assume someone is all about will turn out to be quite the opposite. Don’t move into a relationship too quickly, or you will find it difficult to backtrack. Keep your distance until you are certain what your intentions are. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Spend your time nurturing a relationship that you want to see grow into something substantial. Making plans will encourage you to work in unison to achieve a common goal that will bring you closer and ensure a bright, long-lasting future. Romance and passion will seal the deal.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Keep your emotions tucked away until you know where you stand with a love interest. Make personal changes that will make you feel good about the way you look and who you are. The added confidence will help you in your pursuit of happiness with that special someone. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): You’ll attract plenty of interest when it comes to finding love. Your passionate, affectionate personality will create must-have appeal to someone you pursue. Acknowledge the partner you want to explore life with, and you will find the peace a good relationship has to offer.
