The people behind the Concertzender
This month this article could just as easily be called Jazz Lives . That’s the title of the photo book jazz lover and Cz in-house photographer* Jaap Van de Klomp published in 2008 , devoted to the graves of famous and less famous Jazz musicians. Time for a few questions to Jaap. How did you get into Jazz? ‘ A class friend of mine at Tradeschool brought my attention to the radio broadcasts by The Dutch Swing College Band, every Saturday afternoon after the one o’clock news. That was nice and attractive music. That’s how I came into Jazz. A few years later I heard on the radio a broadcast by Michiel de Ruyter of a new recording by Rita Reys and the Wessel Ilcken Combo. I was hooked ! Rita later often performed in our jazz club and I’ve always been a big fan .’ Jaap van de Klomp
