As spontaneous, free, and chaotic as live jazz can be, there's a certain decorum at the Blue Note. To enter, one must reserve a spot in the bruise-blue and mirror-decorated room at either the bar (roughly $20, depending) or a table ($30, same deal). There, you can order up some filet mignon or pan-roasted salmon, and sip wine while chaos enfolds on the bandstand maybe four feet away. It's impressively authentic here: the jazz veterans who sit in each night are less than six degrees of separation from the greats, i.e. Miles Davis or Herbie Hancock, and six feet from your table.
