I trust you've received some responses already, but here's one local's
bix is a pretty swank supper club not too far from annie's. not cheap,
but reportedly some of the finest martinis in the city. most likely to
have trad jazz too.
also in the approximate neighborhood is bacar restaurant, which hosts
"classic modern" jazz at least twice a week. drummer donald bailey (he
has a serious history including being jimmy smith's drummer of choice)
may still have a residency there. it's huge and there's a lounge too.
also $$ though.
and up on fillmore, rassela's and the newly opened yoshi's are fulltime
jazz venues, but pretty out of the way (and one is very unlikely to
hear a lick of turk murphy around there either). personally i'd go for
the empress of china or the tonga room, neither have changed much since
the days of earthquake mcgoon's.
