Wik Horn

Born 1943, Amsterdam, Netherlands. Classical piano education (4 years) starting at 10. When I was 14 I started to play (classic) jazz with my younger brother Fred (trumpet/cornet/reeds). We formed in 1965 our first real band (after schoolbands, etc.): The Court Town Rhythm Kings. The band played authentic old jazz in the way of Oliver, Morton, early Armstrong, Williams, Beiderbecke and Half Way House
