Jazz Scene in Florida - Tampa Bay, Jacksonville, Pensacola areas

Hey everyone. My wife and I are thinking of checking out Florida (sometime if the pandemic allows) and I'm curious what the jazz scene is like in these areas. Is there a vibrant jazz scene? Regular gigs and jam sessions? Venues/players who are "must see"? How are people from these areas making it as musicians? Thanks for any info you can give.

I know about Jacksonville and Tampa. They actually have very vibrant jazz scenes! More than many towns I have been to actually
It’s all gone due to Covid. My friends still in Florida who lived off of music are living off of unemployment now. All of that live music was hit hard, so definitely don’t expect much!
