Berlin Photo Diary 2014 – Rusira Mixtett in b-flat

Sometimes a visit to a jazz club you don’t know turns out to be interesting.

This was the case when we found our way to b-flat acoustic music & jazz club in Berlin late June. We checked in advance that there was live music, but the band of the night – Rusira Mixtett, “Democratic Brass Jazz From Berlin” – was unknown to us.

The band was led by Ruth “Rusira” Schepers (comp., ss, as fl, cl). Other members were Robert Würz (as), Tobias Dettbarn (cl), Christian Magnusson (tp), Anke Lucks (tb), Olaf Hollmann (bs), Tom Dayan (dr) and Pauline Boeykens (tuba). They played interesting mix of contemporary experimental music, partly improvised, with a strong flavor of jazz.

I enjoyed the night and wish I can hear the band live in the future again. And I will visit b-flat again, for sure.


But hear yourself. Here is a video of their play.
