The Art of the Improvisers
A Serenade For Bill Moons – part 9
A series of programmes with waving-goodbye music for Willem van Manen (Bill Moons).
Willem van Manen (former trombone player, composer en bandleader) said goodbye as co-ordinator of the jazz section of the Concertzender after almost fifteen years. For that occasion, programme maker Bert Broere compiled a personal musical selection.
Van Manen owes his (nick)name to the other Willem: Willem Breuker. In 1975, he dedicated a composition to Van Manen with the title ‘Twenty Minutes In The Life Of Bill Moons’.
Tonight you will hear only Dutch musicians: trombone player Joost Buis + The Astronotes, flügelhorn player Angelo Verploegen with percussionist Jasper van Hulten and Joost Buis with reed player/flute player Ab Baars.
