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).

The band played authentic old jazz in the way of Oliver, Morton, early Armstrong, Williams, Beiderbecke and Half Way House.

There my brother and I founded in 1973 “Madam Zenja and her Jazz Horns”, together with singer Zenja Damm
