The Rob Pronk Sextet played a major role in Dutch jazz in the 1950s. However, the group, featuring Ruud Brink, Jerry van Rooyen, Rob Madna and Dick van der Capellen, never recorded an album. The Dutch Jazz Archive is therefore pleased to fill this gap with this CD: three never previously released sessions from 1957 showcasing the sextet’s core, sometimes joined by other top talents such as Herman Schoonderwalt, Harry Verbeke, Toon van Vliet, Ack van Rooyen, Ruud Jacobs and Cees See.
