the appetite may sicken and so die.”

Andy BeyCD of the month

Erwin Maas (see ‘Introducing’) has chosen Andy Bey's album ‘Pages from an Imaginary Life’ (High Note, 2014) as our CD of the month.

He has this to say : “For jazz lovers, one of the highlights of recent weeks was definitely the release of John Coltrane's legendary Temple University concert. 9 months before his death,
an inspired Coltrane throws off all restraints in his search for spirituality. No-one has ever blown his last embers away with such life. But despite that I still decided to choose singer Andy Bey's new album ‘Pages from and Imaginary Life’.

Bey has not yet broken through with a wider public during his 60 year career.
When he was 17 he started the trio Andy Bey and the Bey Sisters with his two sisters. He has also recorded with jazz greats like Horace Silver, Max Roach and Stanley Clarke.”

Introducing …

Erwin MaasErwin Maas, presenter

“For a few months now I have been a presenter at the Concertzender. On weeknights I look after the presentation of the live broadcasts. For my first acquaintance with CZ we have to go back about 10 years. I can still remember sitting at home in Brabant as a child with my ear glued to the radio. The concertzender was simply on the cable in those days. For the first time in my life I heard jazz, a tenacious love of my youth. That same love brought me back again to this broadcaster. When I started to gain more in-
depth knowledge about jazz some years ago, my search took me regularly to
the Concertzender’s archives: an absolute gold mine. Where can you still find something like that?”
