2006_02_arts_diamond.jpgYears ago, Gothamist would head over to Smalls on 10th Street to listen to jazz. It was byob, cozy, intimate, dark and open pretty much all the time. In 2003 Smalls closed its doors. We were left with high priced jazz venues that looked more like Miami nightclubs. However, we recently heard a rumor of Smalls re-opening. We can't seem to find a thing about it, can anyone confirm?

As for other jazz spots around the city, here's what looks to be like a pretty full listing, but we want you to tell us...where is a good place to see live jazz?

Note: While Neil Diamond's "The Jazz Singer" movie soundtrack isn't exactly the type of jazz we are looking for, we will use any excuse we have to use that image. We love the Diamond.
