We're just 10 days away from the start of the 2009 Chicago Jazz Festival, but we know that some of you can't wait even that long. For the diehards, there's the annual Jazz Club Tour, going down on September 2 at clubs all around town.

For $30 ($25 in advance), you'll gain entrance to 14 of the city's most popular venues from 6 p.m.-midnight, with the help of the Chicago Trolley Co. This year's slate includes heavy hitters like the Green Mill and the Jazz Showcase along with smaller spots like Uncommon Ground and M Lounge. The full list of clubs and performers is after the jump; if you're sold already, buy tickets on the website.
