One important correction:

CINCINNATI: The Blue Wisp Jazz Club is at http://www.thebluewisp.com/

Also the Cleveland Bop Shop seems to be an empty site, no events, etc. Is it still in operation??

Later,

There are some really good jams in SF at

Grant and Green Bar in North Beach and Amnesia in the Mission.  If you go, bring your horns, I went to Grant and Green last Monday and there were very few trombone players.

Word:

Some of these clubs are prettty much closed sessions, open only to friends of the establishment. Especially in certain places in towns in flyoverland.

Hello, Harry - I found you on this website!  I notice you have the Speakeasy on your list.  It is no longer in business; at least it wasn't when we were there a few months ago.  Jane and I would like to go to all the other places!  When do we start packing?

Hi, Jeff,

Glad to see you here!  I'll have to see how to get The Speakeasy off the list. We can start packing now for trips to the others, but it will take a bunch of weekends to get to all of them....although the trip to Indy to the Jazz Kitchen was great.

Best,

Harry

Last night I went to Jimmy Maks in Portland (Oregon) to hear the remarkable Mel Brown and the B3 organ quintet...anyway, I came for the 8:00 show, but forgot they had bumped the B3 show (a weekly occurence) up to 8:45 or so because they had another act in. The other act was a young woman playing keyboard/guitar and singing, in the vein of what i would call "20-something female emoting expression folk music" - kinda like, I dunno, the "diva" groups of the late 90's. Definitely not what i would call jazz.

Anyway, whatever, but the place was packed - I mean standing room only. Then she ended her set, and the place cleared out, leaving a smattering of folks. I guess my point is that jazz is not as popular as we wish - the "pop" artist drew the large crowd, then the really remarkable local jazz artists groups don't get the draw. One of the groups is a jazz nonet that has been together for 11 years - and the newest member has been with them 8 years - they are tight to say the least - and I've gone to listen where there are only 7 or 8 people in the audience. What a shame...
