If you have never been to Clue Note you are missing out on some awesome jazz. We saw BB King jamming with Bobby McPherin, what a great night, totally drunk on a Saturday. blue Note is where the cool cats are at.

Great performance...... loved every minute of the Omar Sosa show.....it was a priviledge to watch this virtuoso perform his music with such pure joy ( very present ,in the moment ). The musicians in the band were each extremely versatile

When I see the word JAZZ I think of toe tapping and fun. This was not it!! Ron Carter was playing and while he is good on the Bass you don't usually hear alot of Bass solos. One of the people fell asleep it was so depressing. The music

Pros: The Acts, The Staff, The Location

Cons: Tight Seating, Overcrowding

That's right The Blue Note Jazz Club holds a series for children called Cat In The Hat Jazz Jam For Kids. It helps if your child can already play abi then they bring their instruments and Chuck helps them blow their way through some arrangements. This is great fun and not to expensive when you consider the quality of the teacher.

PROS: Great time for your kid
CONS: If they don't already have some musical ability they can get lost
