The Art of the Improvisers
A Serenade For Bill Moons, part 11
A series of programmes with farewell music for Willem van Manen (Bill Moons).
Willem van Manen (ex trombonist, composer and bandleader) has left us as a co-ordinator of the jazz section at Concertzender after almost fifteen years. On this occasion, programme maker Bert Broere has compiled a personal musical choice in twelve parts.
Van Manen has to thank another Willem for his nickname: Willem Breuker. In 1975, he devoted a composition to van Manen titled Twenty Minutes In The Life Of Bill Moons.
Tonight, you hear music of Rob Mc Connell & The Boss Brass, Buell Neidlinger’s String Jazz and Jimmy Knepper.
