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...
Sounds like a disappointing experience. I've been to Jimmy Mak's a few times and have never seen anything but great jazz played for a full house. I hear great things about Mel's band but have never checked them out because I usually only get out to see jazz on the weekend.

Anyway, to add to the Portland list, there is a great new club called the Brasserie Montmartre on SW Park. http://www.brasserieportland.com/

And my friends the Bridgetown Saints play at the Blue Monk:

I just played the Clifford Brown Fest and spoke with Larry Young, Jr. He was talking about a new club in Wilmington. Is this the place?

David,
Sorry for the delay.  I have been busy and not on the forum much.  Yes, the Nomad is the place.  I think I missed you.  When did you play that week?
