A familiar face is back in Rochester for this year's Xerox Rochester International Jazz Festival.

Mike Cottone was one of the first scholarship winners at the Jazz Fest more than 10 years ago.

Today, he is touring with some big names, but he still finds time to come back for the festival every year.

13WHAM's Matt Molloy spoke with Cottone as the Jazz Fest rolls into Day Seven.
