The Derek Trucks Band – Jazzfest Berlin 11-06-2005
Delphi Theater, Berlin, Germany


The festival ended its compacted four-day run with the more rootsy Americana-based sounds of the Derek Trucks Band (Trucks sounded, as usual, like the future of intelligent rock guitar) and the “Rev.” Jeff Mosier’s Ear Reverents jamming on bluegrass-fusion energies into the wee hours at Quasimodo.

Observers a the Berlin Jazz Festival, especially outsiders flying in for the occasion, may be tempted to draw metaphorical analogies between the Wall’s fall and the genre-razing bent of the festival’s musical programming. That’s partly valid, but it’s also too easy a conclusion. Berlin’s program is merely a good example of what any good festival should be about: a celebration of jazz’s natural plurality. More than any musical tradition, jazz is itself but also many other things. That state of healthy confusion and openness is alive and well in Berlin.
