Southland Jazzband @ The Cotton Club, Hamburg 4/2/09

I went back to Hambug, Germany for another of Ariel & Shya Kane's wonderful workshops. I'm busy at work, so this trip was really about the workshop and kind of short.

I really like The Cotton Club. Its a bunch of wooden tables with seats with cushions. The band is in the middle of the room and most of us are sitting on one side or another and we can all see pretty well.

The band was great. Trombone, piano, cornet, reeds (one guy on clarinet/alto/soprano), sousaphone, banjo, and washboard. I got there a little after 10 and they were probably on their 2nd set. They took a 15 min break at 10:50 and then played another one hour set. I enjoyed it thoroughly.
