Just wondered is there somewhere I can take some O/S visitors to listen to blues/jazz, without having dozens of drunks all over the room.

Thanks :o

Mango Tree Jazz/Blues band starts at about 8.00pm and goes on till 11.00/30 at present. Playing sax, flute, Thai flute, piano, bass, drums, mouth harp & occasional local and international guest artists.

(Extra staff will soon, hopefully, allow later trading!)

Drunks are kept outside with the cockroaches...

Bottom end of Loi Kroh Road, on the right near the bars.

Mango Tree opens all day, starting from 7.30am for breakfast & shows DVD Jazz & Blues during the daytime.

Have you heard of the Brasserie ? I think they play jazz/blues......bit other stuff as well. there used to be a famous Thai guy playing there who was known for his ability to play excellent versions of people like Hendrix. But who was quite versatile and would play allsorts of stuff. I dont know if this is what you are looking for or if it would suit, but it always had a good atmosphere without loads of drunks etc. Maybe someone else can update this info as I have not been there for 2 years.

Brasserie still going strong, the guitarist is the owner & he normally gets going after midnight.

Brasserie is primarily Rock rather than Blues & does not play Jazz...

maeng-daa is water beetle, and very tasty as part of a chile dip.

cockroach = maeng-sap

phii tuk generally plays a couple of blues tunes every night, and his house band always does a few blues numbers earlier in the evening.

haven't been to mango tree, will have to drop by some evening soon.

Place next to the Tavern on the river by the TAT. If it's still going. No drunks as it was a bit expensive.

There's a place on the south side of Tai Phai rd, a couple blocks west of the river, that has a group called "Teh Band"....I think just a typo for "The Band", with a young girl drummer and a really great clarinetist (who plays other instruments as well), who really makes you believe that he's a reincarnation of Paul Desmond. They play mostly 60's-style jazz, easy to listen to stuff, but they are very good, if not very adventurous.

not live music, but i discovered a great little shop selling great jazz, reggae, world etc, and at only 150 baht a cd copy.

check out "Noahs Ark" on Ratchadamnoen near la villa Italian restaurant.

Is a guy named "Took" still playing in CM? I think the name of the place was "The Brasserie" or something like that but I'm not sure.

Aloha,

Must say the live music at Mango Tree was quite nice, and surely aided my digestion. :o
