Where to listen to Live Jazz in Baltimore

Jazz is back baby!  For a while there is seemed like Baltimore had forgotten all about its musical roots.  With the likes of Eubie Blake and Billie Holiday who once graced the streets of Baltimore, it is surprising that it took this long for jazz to make its comeback.  Now there are plenty of places for you to enjoy live jazz music almost every day of the week!  This list is a work in progress and doesn’t account for any random cancellations but the locations below seem to be pretty consistent.  Additions to the list are also welcomed !
