Between Swing and Bop
Raised in Veendam, pianist Rein de Graaff (1942)
has always been dedicated to bebop. Besides his own
worthwhile contributions as a pianist, he invited numerous –
often forgotten – American boppers for a brief
tour to our country. This episode features
trumpeter Conte Candoli together with tenorist Bob Cooper.
We will also hear saxophonist Teddy Edwards, flutist Sam Most and the
baritone saxophonists Ronnie Cuber and Nick Brignola.
