Elpee 'Jazz from R'JAM' now available

Max Dereta

On 20 October 2017 is the new jazz album Jazz from R'jam presented. The album was commissioned by BKOR by music lover Roland Vonk. On the LP are thirteen jazz recordings of the Rotterdam musicians, who have been depicted since 2013 in the portrait gallery on and around the Oude Binnenweg. The oldest recordings are from 1935.
