Dutch Jazz on CD, compiled by Jan Verwey.

Theme: The Metropole Orchestra.

Tonight’s theme is the world-renowned Metropole Orchestra, playing in every possible style, like jazz, classical, pop, soul, musical, etcetera. The orchestra is home to great musicians, also in jazz: Bart van Lier, now retired, Hans Vrooman and Rik Mol and Sjoerd Dijkhuizen have recently joined the line-up.

This programme features four albums with varying atmospheres because of the different styles and because the conductors and arrangers provide a certain timbre. For example, Vince Mendoza, Jim McNeely and John Clayton are all world-famous for conducting and arranging, and so is Rob Pronk. It is also remarkable that none of the 4 CDs is for sale and have all been produced through subsidies.

By the way, their permanent conductor has been Jules Buckley for some years now.
