Great Music but hard to hear it
It's good to have a place to go almost any night of the week and hear quality jazz. Blue Jean Blues gives you that. There are quality artists and bands playing there almost nightly. Great looking and comfortable club. Good food, friendly and hardworking waitresses and bartenders. My only complaint comes with trying to hear music there when it's packed as it usually is on Fridays and Saturdays. I saw the Andrea Wood Quartet there last Sat. night and really couldn't hear the music very well at all because of the noise coming from the people around the bar. I felt sorry for the singer because the louder she sang, the louder the people talked and laughed to drown her out. Maybe the people sitting up front did not have that problem but there are only a handful of seats there and most were reserved somehow. One of the reviewers below says he has the right to talk while the show is going on and that I should go to a concert hall to hear the music without the extra noise. My reply to that would be that if he isn't interested in the music then why not go someplace with a DJ or no music at all instead of making it difficult for the artists and the people who want to hear them. Overall I still like the place, especially when it's not full. If you really want to listen to some good jazz though get there early and get a seat up front, or else the loudmouths at the bar will ruin it for you.
