When Hans Hoff and his five boys from Blue Again took to the stage of the sold-out Jazz Schmiede for the last time on 29 February 2020, nobody knew that the first lockdown would shut down all cultural venues 14 days later. Back then, Blue Again were basically the support act for the big stupid C. In retrospect, the performance of the formidable soul-blues-jazz-rock combo seems like a last naive rebellion before the collapse. Exactly four years to the day after this event, Hans Hoff, formerly known and feared as a music and media critic, who grew up within sight of the Jazz Schmiede and now lives mainly in the Eifel, wants to pick up where that almost legendary encounter left off with his power unit. Not to the lockdown a fortnight later, of course, but to the irrepressible energy with which these soul men from the gold class electrified the packed hall back then, to all the sad stories that can be transformed into a sense of well-being through good blues, to the soul that ensures the sublimity of truly relevant classics, to the intricacy that sometimes turns a rock song into jazz. Once again, the legacy of James Brown, Sam & Dave, Wilson Pickett and B.B. King must be honoured. When Blue Again play, the soul becomes jazzy and the blues funky.
