More a shrine to the good old days than a vibrant musical hotspot, the Blue Note is supposed to inspire museum-caliber reverence in lovers of jazz history. Unfortunately, its outrageous cover and policies—unless you have a "stay-over pass," you must pay admission during each set for popular shows, unlike other venues where you can hold your seat by buying drinks—ensure that today's struggling jazzbos never gain entry. The sole reason to endure this pseudo high-class torture is the Blue Note's exclusive booking practices: Certain artists, like John Coltrane's powerhouse drummer, the late Elvin Jones, wouldn't play anywhere else within city limits. At least they pay the industry's workhorses well.
