In jazz-type small/medium gigs, it's so much easier if the bass goes alone, and for example you may even be OK with yamaha DBR10s, DXR8, or QSC K8. (I assume the drums are not miked)
Yes, agree with that. Ideally bass would have a stand alone amp. Keep PA for everything else.
Maybe though ‘everything through the PA’ has always worked for the band and is convenient.
Monitoring looks sufficient.
