Band, *1934 NL
A.k.a. Jack van Poll
Jack van Poll was born in 1934 in Roosendaal, The Netherlands. He started playing piano at the age of four. After the liberation of the Second World War he discovered the first Bebop tunes on V-discs and on the American Forces Network Channel. With his teen age trio "The Rose Valley's", he took part in the Dutch Jazz Competition in Amsterdam in 1946. From the early Fifties on, he backed up single artists from the U.S.A., who performed in Holland and Belgium, like Don Byas, Ben Webster, Johnny Griffin, Clark Terry, Tony Scott, Ted Curson, Buddy DeFranco and many others. In the late seventies he moved to Antwerp, Belgium, where he opened the "September Jazz Club" and founded the "September Jazz Records" label. His album Hi Jackin' (Decca, 1972) has for a long time been DJ Rainer Trüby's best kept secret in his dj-sets all over the world, because on this album the Fender Rhodes sound is ubiquitous. Van Poll saw this album as a one-time experiment.
