I've found this article and tried to translate it, here's what it's all about

March the 5th, 17:50 @
After his own gig James visited Diesel's Jam Session
Even James' bad cold couldn't stop him and his band from visiting a private party Diesel's Jam Session right after his own gig in Palace of Sports.
The boys came to the PaTiPa club by taxi and with no bodyguards. While going to the VIP-room they tried to learn some words in Ukrainian, greeting politely the security and everyone on their way. By the way, very few people recognized James - maybe they just couldn't believe that this simple and sweet guy is the James Blunt!
In the VIP-room the boys asked the hosts about the session and how often it takes place. They wanted to meet Diesel, the initiator of the event.
"So just anyone can come up to the microphone or the guitar?" James Blunt was asking in great surprise.
"Of course, that's the main goal of our parties" answered Diesel.
"Even I can do that?" - asked the singer.
"Especially you! " answered Diesel.
"I want to sing here! Boys, let's go downstairs! " told James Blunt to his band.
It's quite obvious what happened next. They played a couple of their songs and than jammed with some Ukrainian musicians. The English guests didn't leave the party after that, they said good-bye just before the club close and thanked for the wonderful night.
"I wouldn't make any fuss about James Blunt and his band coming tonight to our JAM. That''s the way it really should be - the musicians should play together, improvise, get to know each other. And I'm talking about both Ukrainian and foreign ones. That's the main idea of my party. Tonight we had a wonderful JAM" - said Disel


It was nice to read about James having great time musically in my city! Didn't expect him to go there, but it's so great!

Oh, I guess we should also thank cyjaneczka - she was the first to find this video - http://forum.jamesblunt.com/viewtopic.php?p=164560#164560

I would really like to know James' feelings about this session. I've known (well, not personally) Diesel for about 10 years, he founded group called GreenGrey and we listened to this music when we were students. It was a kind of alternative at that time :-) Amazing that the've decided to invite James. I guess that was their BEST session ever))) Good to see James is so open to all new experiences with other musicians. I wander how it was in reality, because it was just a review on one of the sites.

It will be really interesting to see if James comments on this in his next newsletter. It seems to me that they really enjoy doing these smaller venues, and I like that James and the boys did some 'jams' with other musicians. This IS how it should be, everyone finding inspirations from eachother! I think this is great, for both the band, the venue, the audience and the other musicians.

OMG, I love this video! James sounds great and the band, too. I enjoy watching James play the electric guitar so much. Love that gravely growl in his voice. How great would it be to have been there up close and personal with the band? I just have to hear this song live! Please come back to the US, James!!
