Restaurant with good live jazz music

Other than the usual BBQ joints, what are some cool restaurants with good live jazz bands?
I remember going to a place in Soho long time ago but no idea what it is called or if it's even still in business. As I remember they had really good chicken caesar salad.

      The food at Jazz Standard is provided by Blue Smoke, which is a bbq joint. They do serve a great burger.

    2. Jazz covers a very wide range - do you like Charlie Parker/John Coltrane or Diana Krall/Dave Brubeck? I'd check here:

      1. You're looking for Dizzy's Club Coca Cola in the Time Warner Building. Good food, often excellent jazz, and a stunning view.

        But don't dismiss the Jazz Standard too quickly. Yes, they specialize in BBQ, but I wouldn't call it a "usual BBQ joint." The setting is very nice and the food is excellent.
