A Serenade For Bill Moons part 10
A series with farewell music for Willem van Manen (Bill Moons).
Willem van Manen, ex-trombonist, composer and band leader, has retired from coordinating the jazz segment at Concertzender after nearly fifteen years. Program maker Bert Broere has composed a personalised music fruit basket, especially for this occasion.
Van Manen owes his nickname to the other Willem: Willem Breuker. He dedicated a composition to Van Manen in 1975, with the title: Twenty Minutes In The Life Of Bill Moons.
Tonight you can listen to music by Bobby Hackett/Miff Mole & Mugsy Spanier, The Jimmy Knepper Sextet and the Albert Mangelsdorff Trio.
