Weintraubs Syncopators

Weintraubs Syncopators
Legendary "jazz" band from Weimar Republic-era Germany, Weintraubs Syncopators. I believe that besides working with Kurt Weill in Germany, they also worked in America later on.....perhaps when things got a little too "hot" in Deutschland.

A lovely, vivid, and evocative picture, I was very keen on trying my colorization software out on it, and hoped to enhance its striking visual impact without vulgarizing it.

In Germany he was no longer allowed to work in public because he was "non-arian", so Weintraub went to Australia, but there they put him into a detention center because he was rewarded with an "iron cross" in WW I as a soldier fighting on the German side..... Ironic.
