Oh man, thanks for turning me on to Maarten Altena. I live in Amsterdam now, and was lucky enough to find this and Rondedans in the used bin at Concerto. If you're on the lookout for any Dutch jazz records, give me the word and I'll keep my eyes open.

'Thank you' x 6 for these, onxidlib, and a seventh 'thank you' for persuading me to splash out and buy 'Miere'.
