1 post in this topic


Yesterday, the 6th of June, 2013, the Dutch reed player, Dim Kesber, passed away, 83 years old. He started his career 68 years ago, In 1945 he started his career with his own quartet playing for US and Canadian soldiers who had liberated Holland. He became a member of the Dutch Swing College Band up to 1960 when the members of the band decided to became full- professionals. In 1966 he started his Reunion Jazz Band, which became very popular in Holland, because they played the music of the early Dutch Swing College Band. During the last decade he performed with his Augmenters and with his Friends.


I still remember one of his last concerts, March 2013, with vocalist Denise Jannah, at the Porgy en Bess Jazz Club in Terneuzen ( The Netherlands), where he started in 1966 his Reunion Jazz Band. Enjoy the photos of this concert ( en het concertverslag ion het Nederlands):
