The conference takes place in the 'Nieuwe Energy' (indeed, the 'New Energy') in Leiden.

Professor Paul Craenen will talk about ACPA and students of the jazz department will perform.
For about a year the sleve of this elpee was prominently exposed in my living room. I listened to the record many times. Finally I could book a trip to New York. I decided to have a pizza next to the Village Vanguard, two hours before the concert. And here he was: Mel Lewis sitting right next to me. We talked and talked. I learned so much. He was so generous. One private student after another came by to make appointments for lessons. "He will never get it.." "She is going to be a great drummer!" During the concert Mel showed the sleeve of this LP and said: "CD's? Buy this!"
