Smoke Review

If you can't wait until sunset to get your riffs on, head uptown to this lounge near Columbia University, where the music starts as early as 6 pm. Performers include some of the top names in the business, including turban-wearing organist Dr. Lonnie Smith and the drummer Jimmy Cobb (who laid down the beat on Miles Davis's seminal album Kind of Blue).

    Do not hesitate. Just go.

    My college freshman daughter and I went on a Sunday night when the place was packed and the music was hot. The food was good, the lights low, the band sublime. My advice is to call ahead to make sure they have room. The staff was very friendly.

    There were all ages there, even some younger kids in the crowd that left before us. This is a great venue to introduce young people to jazz and blues - it is very intimate, with a capacity somewhere around 50. Kids are welcome as long as they sit in the dining area. They have no cover charge on Sunday evening and week-nights, and also a Sunday Jazz Brunch. I can't wait to go back.
