Episode 2: Jenne

First aired: Wednesday, 1 October 2014 at 18.00 hours

Jenne Meinema (Groningen, May 18, 1931) is a respected musician, but acts in jazz circles, little in the foreground. He does not move in multiple genres, and has chosen to only work in the Groningen region.

Meinema has therefore never made a record under his own name. The alto saxophonist plays all genres with pleasure, but his heart goes out to the music of Charlie Parker:

"What me in the bebop most enjoys is the emotional and technical. Throwing out what's in your. For me that really too much energy. Nothing more. To fear, passion, sadness to look for in goes too far. Play Those feelings most of ballads sometimes. Continue the adventure. Make strange intervals, doubling passages. So you're constantly leaps in the dark "while playing.

A film by Buddy Hermans.
