this place is still good – still a good place to catch up and coming talent. Drinks are pricey but you pay for the atmosphere. This place is cool.
LEGENDARY – 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.
Finest Jazz spot in NYC – It's all about the vibes man! What more can I say about Blue Note...being an avid jazz fan for decades, I can honestly say this place continues the tradition of fine jazz music performed by deep-rooted jazz/r&b/soul musicians!
P.S. And the food isn't bad either! lol
The Best! This is the place to always stop by and checkout someof the most profound and talented artists from all over the world!
Omarrr.....Omar Sosa – 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 and talented.
I didn't have dinner at the club.... but I don't see anyone could say this place is "pricey" my friend and I paid $25 each for a great table about 10 feet from Omar Sosa and $8 bucks for a Heineken. I don't know where you come from...... but for the show we got thats not expensive at all !
The acoustics in the Blue Note are incredible..... its like listening to a live album on your ipod with Shure E5c earbuds. Omar said himself this place is like being in someones house.
Legendary Venue with Great Perfomers – I've been to Blue Note a few times. While it may be a bit pricey(what isn't in NYC), this is one of the premier jazz venues in the entire world. Everybody who's anybody has played this stage at one time or another. The acoustics are very good as well.
As far as the last review calling Ron Carter boring....hmmm. Maybe that person didn't catch the right show but Ron Carter is a legend and has played with everyone from Miles Davis to Bill Evans to even James Brown. The statement of, "while he is good on the Bass you don't usually hear alot of Bass solos." Once again........hmmmm. Almost every jazz show I've been to has a series of bass solos throughout the performance, some longer than others but still, that's jazz! Oh well, can't please everyone.
Boring!!! – 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 would have been good for a wake!! I guess I just didn't get it but I really associate jazz witha little more up tempo music than solo Bass
Great Jazz and Great Food – When walking into the Blue Note one feels the historical significance of this legendary jazz club. I would recommend spending the extra money to actually get a seat rather than standing in the back at the very crowded bar. There is a minimum but skip having dinner before hand and grab a cocktail and a burger and listen to the modern giants of jazz.
jazz club – Went on a Thursday night at 22.30 to see Amel Larrieux. She played for almost 2 hours. Great performance, great audience and great atmosphere. The $5 drink minimum is no problem as drinks start at $8. Service was good. Table setting is tight, everyone is sitting opposite of each other. Seems strange at the start but you get used to it quickly. My first visit couldn't have been better.
Intimate – Great music, good service and a relaxed attitude. It's rare to order tickets online and not have to pay a service charge.
