This King Super 20 belonged to Dutch sax legend Robert Veen who sadly passed away this year. What a kind man and great musician he was. He was worldwide known and respected for recreating 30’s traditional jazz, filmmusic from that era and 40’s swing jazz and last but not least his love for the music and sound of Sydney Bechet. I had the pleasure to share the stage with him a couple of times. Something to never forget.
But life goes on. This sax needs to get in good shape again and needs to keep on spreading the message of music.
Here’s a little tribute to Robert:
