It all start­ed at a club called Oxi­dent in 2005 and has become an insti­tu­tion now locat­ed at the restau­rant Das Edel­weiss in Berlin-Kreuzberg.  One among many jam ses­sions in vibrant Berlin, one might say at first, but unique for its mul­ti-cul­tur­al musi­cal vibe.  Opened by host Lionel Haas — piano, Daryl Tay­lor — bass, Rico McClar­rin — drums, the evening begins with trio-jazz and through­out evolves into a huge get­to­geth­er of musi­cal tal­ents of var­i­ous musi­cal back­grounds, rang­ing from R&B, blues, soul and funk to Latin and Afro beat.  The audi­ence: most­ly young and enthu­si­as­tic inter­na­tion­al peo­ple.  You think jazz is dead?  Think again!
