On the first Monday of every month, the froelich&herrlich in the West Wing (Hähnelstraße 27) is the venue for the Mondayboxxx Real Jazz Orchestra octet. Under this name, in front of the withered plaster of the walls and under the warm light of the chandelier, a changing group of Leipzig's jazz greats gathers. Fortunately, there are quite a few of them. The ensemble describes its sound as traditional jazz. They play classics of jazz literature as well as their own arrangements of various pieces. The warmth of the fireplace invites you to linger, posters by Robert Voss catch many a wandering eye, and the unconditional center of the evening's events is, of course, the ensemble's almost tangible joy in playing. In advanced exuberance, the decision about the next solos to be played is sometimes left in the hands of the audience, which could hardly be more delighted.
