The Art of the Improvisers
A Serenade For Bill Moons, part 6

A series of programmes with farewell music in honour of Willem van Manen (Bill Moons)

After almost fifteen years, Willem van Manen (former trombone player, composer and bandleader), and coordinator of the jazz sector at the Concertzender, has left. For that occassion, programme maker Bert Broere compiled a musical present, especially for him.

Van Manen owes his nickname to Willem Breuker, who dedicated a composition titled Twenty Minutes In The Life Of Bill Moons to him in 1975.

Tonight’s music comes from Trombone Inc., George Lewis and the duo Frank Rosolino & Carl Fontana.
