They're everywhere just head to Frenchmen in the Marigny @ night.
D.B.A or Spotted Cat, Snug Harbor....finding a Jazz club is pretty easy here.
Hell, Bourbon street has Preservation hall and Fritzel's even.

Not sure if you're only looking for jazz, there are some amazing local bands/musicians if you're interested in different types of live music - I really like the Apple Barrel when Coco Robicheaux (blues) is playing and I always try to catch the Soul Rebels (big brass band) when I'm in town - last time I saw them at the Blue Nile also on Frenchmen. Rebirth Brass Band has become internationally known and they have a quick scene in The Skeleton Key movie - they're also a big brass band but I prefer Soul Rebels because they're more 'raw'. Frenchmen St is your best bet for live music of all types, you can just walk up and down the street listening to the music coming out of the bars until you find the one that works for you – tough it seems lately that that area is pretty quiet during the week with most bands playing on Fri/Sat. I will say tough that some of the best music I remember hearing all my trips to NO came from a group of young kids that were entertaining the crowds with their beat-up second hand brass instruments at Jackson Square – they’re gone since Katrina.

I love those NO brass bands. I'm a traditional jazz tuba player here in Ft Worth, as well as fretless electric bass, and the variety in NO is amazing. I love nearly all of it. Too bad about the kids in Jackson Square...that's what it's all about.

You might also consider the Palm Court Cafe. You can eat a nice dinner while enjoying some traditional jazz.
