With all due respect,this is a discussion list Dave. People are 
going to and will state opinions that you may or may not agree 
with. That is when the delete button comes in handy.

When I personally spoke about jazz clubs not paying musicians it 
was in response to what another lister had said(can't remember 
who right now) as well as what some jazz clubs in my own area 
haven't done.

I am pleased to hear of what the Austin Jazz Society has managed 
to accomplish. However that is not what I have consistently seen 
in my particular area; every jazz club is different.
