Art Blakey once said that Jazz has to be “danceable and have the Blues” and in many ways this could be Ben van den Dungen’s general musical motto.
He has been in the jazz scene for some years. He made so far around 70 albums and played around 5000 concerts.
His quartet contains a special combination of musical personality’s. Nothing pretentious, just swinging, right up to date and with a “happy feel”. These characteristics makes this band so undeniably 100% pure Jazz.
