The John Engels Quintet played in Cloud Nine in Tivoli Vredenburg on 22 September. John Engels (84) played together with Benjamin Herman alto saxophone, Ruud Breuls trumpet, Rob van Bavel piano and Ruud Ouwehand bass. Engels began his career at an early age. He was only 18 in 1953 when he played with Mary Lou Williams in the Vliegende Hollander, a well-known jazz club in Scheveningen at the time. From the end of the 1950s he played with the Diamond Five and he is still playing now almost 70 years later. And how! You can listen to a live recording – which includes numbers from the Diamond Five – in Concertzender Live on Saturday 9 November 14:00 – 15:00 CET.
