Ben and Jarmo in the house of hard bop
mon 29 mar 2021
The year was 1985. The first prize of the NOS Meervaart Jazz Podium went to the Ben van den Dungen/Jarmo Hoogendijk Quintet. The hard bop formation conducted by Ben (sax) and Jarmo (trumpet) was a sensation and immediately generated wide interest. They toured through the Netherlands, Europe, the US, and Canada. Drummer Eric Ineke – also your programme maker – was part of this quintet’s core composition, just like pianist Rob van Bavel and bass player Harry Emmery. Albums were released in the early 90s: Speak Up, Run from your Wife, Double Dutch. Both wind players wrote most of the compositions. Home-grown energetic hard bop!
