Check Inn is listed as a restaurant, but I went (and go) looking for good jazz. I had seen William Waite playing excellent saxophone in other venues and he told me about a Sunday afternoon jam he hosts at Check Inn. The house band is a rock solid group playing standards (Waite renders great Coltrane, Sonny Rollins, Monk and more) and you literally never know who will show up to sit in. Everyone is welcome from first timers on up, but one of the best things about it is local pros also come in to have fun. The best players in Bangkok shoulder to shoulder with novices giving them a leg up and making beautiful music. There's a nice 99 baht menu with nachos, mini burgers, mushroom soup, baked potatoes and bigger dishes if you're really hungry (I like 3 pancakes and ice cream, personally). I also like that it happens 2-6pm, so I don't have to stay out late to get my fill of good music on a Sunday. The atmosphere is suitably dimly lit and cozy, also a neat treat on a Sunday afternoon. Come in, listen to some cool music, get your nerve up and join the band!
