New Standard Jamsession
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!
