Excellent jam sessions at a place is called Ying-Yangs. It's located
at 3rd and Spring St. in midtown. Every Sunday night they have
a "naked jazz jam". I've been there a few times and most of the
musicians were very good. The club is relatively small (a bit larger
than Twins in DC) and the crowd varies in ages but most are 35 and under.
There is a cover charge (about $4).

The Hot Club of Atlanta plays the music of Django Reinhart and the Hot Club

thirties and early forties. It's an open jam. All instruments are welcome
and vocalists are encouraged too. We have had every instrument imaginable
and sometimes we have had up to fifteen people jamming on one stage at a
time. Other times, trios, quartets etc. Levels of playing are novice
to seasoned professional. Often, those getting started will find themselves
playing with pros with many years experience. We've had all manner of
vocalists sit it. Odetta has jammed with us. We even have swing dancing.
