Jazz men have always been somewhat eclectic - I was sat in with a German Trad band in Moenchen Gladbach back in the day - Banoist said "You will know this one - its an English Folk Song" and we played a lovely slow stomp version of Brahms Cradle Song !

Unfortunately, my browser couldn't make it to the end, but all the same, God bless America!

About 60 years ago, I browsed thru a German songbook with songs from all over the world. Not only were the words translated, but the tunes had been Germanized. "Oh, Susannah" became a waltz, and "Vive la Compangnie" a vigorous march.

A curious thing about Brahms's Cradle Song is that in American it is universally known as "Brahms' Lullaby" and so everybody knows it is by Brahms. In Germany (so a German once told me) it is known (of course) as Wiegenlied, and almost nobody knows it is by Brahms!

Dear Me! Sounds vaguely like Danny Boy only with built in fart sounds

A Shout Band from the Universal House of Prayer church/sect. At one stage there's a few spoken words which at first I couldn't make out - seems to refer to "Daddy Grace", founder of the sect. Tine is definitely "Danny Boy"...


Any of our American friends come across the genre before?

Regards

p.s. I agree about the tuba. Apart from all that, as I commented elsewhere, some of them look a little more s(h)aved than others!

Thanks for the link, Martin. I had never heard of the United House of Prayer and its trombone groups before.

That performance is what I would call "jazz standard." There's innovation and there are blue notes, but the entire thing is musical - no overblowing the helpless instrument, no gurgling of phlegm. Nice!
