It was a little awkward at first I guess—a band of young brothers coming in the door of one of Germany's oldest jazz clubs. Yall know we're gonna get that love once the horns come by the time LT came through the crowd with the tuba HYPNOTIC was getting full appaluse before even having played a single note. That's how much Germany loves its brass.

And that's how much this country is getting tripped out by this band.

We only played a couple songs but that was enough to justify the warmed up reception. After that we just fell back with some beers and listened to the other musicians...all real competent with the 20th century expat bohemian jazz sound. Later in the night though a combo went in to Antonio Carlos Jobim's "How Insensitive" and Clef and Smoov had to pull the brass back out...Jobim's tune with some youngbloods running through it—never heard it that way before and it took Vinicius DeMoraes' lyrics to a new dimension.

How insensitive
I must have seemed
When she told me that she loved me
How unmoved and cold
I must have seemed
When she told me so sincerely
Why she must have asked
Did I just turn and stare in icy silence
What was I to say?
What can you say
When a love affair is over?

Threw a little clip up, there's another that's is 1MB too big so if someone can tell me how to chop up this footage then by all means holler this way.
