It has been a truly grand weekend at the Jazz Open in Hamburg. Brilliant sun all around and magnificent jazz music sounding from the open air stage at the park Planten un Blomen. Good reasons for many a thousand people to come flocking in. Amongst them a man dressed in black, inconspicuously acting as a walking talking advertising column for the upcoming date of the Nighthawks at the Fabrik. And – surprisingly, or not – he gets asked, talked to and assurances to meet again on the 24th of November at the Fabrik. Newspapers measure circulation, advertisers contact figures and we are always eager to communicate with music lovers.
