Christina & cigalechanta,
Yes, I remember jazz valley. It was a really great site. I hadn't been able to find it lately, but didn't realize it had closed down

Christina,
Thanks for the links!

Sandy

We stopped in at Cafe Universel in May... it's a tiny place, kind of a funky 'student bar' atmosphere. The musicians have a teensy corner to stand in, and the bathroom door is just next to their 'stage'. There were two very busy bartenders. No cover - we had a beer and glass of wine, don't remember how much it cost but not earth-shattering for sure. The place might hold 30 people.

We also visited the Swan Bar on blvd Montparnasse. They hold special concerts fairly often, otherwise seemed kind of 'slow'. A nice-sized room, small tables, downstairs 'lounge'(empty) where the restrooms are. Cool bartender (owner?) - young woman with a sort of hip/goth look. Art Deco-influenced decor. I think it's probably at the 'wrong' end of Montparnasse to get much walk-in business (just down from Closerie des Lilas). Drinks are expensive - a few glasses at 7€, rapidly advancing to 15€ up.

This was during a city-wide jazz event, so there were some 'specials' going on in various clubs and bars.
