”That jazz” is referring to a miracle in music that happened in the beginning of 1900s when people from a big variation of ethnical and cultural background inspired each other to play in a new fashion. Luckily all this coincided with the development of new inventions like the phonograph recordings, photography and film so that it became in part documented and still can be enjoyed today. In my early teens I happened to be exposed to ”that jazz” and it struck a string deep within me that has kept vibrating ever since.

Melancholy Blues

Hot House Jazzmen

Hot House Jazzmen var husband på jazzklubben I Malmö, spelade flitigt I jazztältet på festivalen och åkte ofta utomlands på miniturnéer. En mindre utflykt var den till Roskilde på vårvintern 1992. Där hade man så kallad frukostjazz på lördagar, ett bra koncept som aldrig slagit rot i Sverige. Jag har för mig att musiken spelades mellan 11 och 14 på dagen inför en lyssnande och öldrickande vältalig publik.

Radion var på plats och sände ut evenemanget i etern och, ja inspelningen blev så bra att vi så småningom gav ut den på kassettband. Dennis, vår washboardspelare hade något förhinder så Hans som var min spelkompis under lång tid i Scaniazz fick rycka in på sagda instrument.

Konserten bjöd bland annat på en inspirerad version av ”Melancholy Blues”. Ulf och jag delar på ett kornett-chorus och sedan är det Lars-Erik på klarinett och Ronny på trombon innan finalen.

Hot House Jazzmen spelar Melancholy Blues, inspelad i Roskilde, 15 februari 1992.
