hi onxidlib,
many thanks for this post - a very rare solo (+ in duo & trio) lp by willem van manen. as i understand it was second lp under his name after "Twenty Minutes In The Life Of Bill Moons - De Achterlijke Klokkenmaker" from 1973/74 in nonet on bvhaast.

do you plan to continue with van manen's own ensemble - contraband ? they released 3 very good records - live at the bimhuis, de ruyter suite and hittit - between 1989 and 1998 - all very difficult to find...

best regards.

Hi Paul,

"Twenty Minutes In The Life Of Bill Moons - De Achterlijke Klokkenmaker" is a session by Willem Breuker.
So the LP from 1979 is - as far as I know his first as a leader.(See also Tom Lord's discography).

And from Contraband one is still available on BvHaast.("DE RUYTER SUYTE")for 10,- Euro.
Except a LP from from the 4-LP Box "New Movements in Jazz" from Radio Nederland which I do not have.
