Juul Anthonissen R.I.P.

The belgian clubowner and concert organiser Juul Anthonissen passed away, he was 77 years old.
He founded the Hnita Jazz Club in in Heist O/D Berg in 1955. A lot of great jazz musicians came to play there : Art Pepper, Keith Jarrett, Frank Morgan, Tony Williams, Jay Jay Johnson, Lou Donaldson, Nat Adderley, Jackie McLean (the cd The Jackie Mc Attack was recorded here), Warne Marsh, Chet Baker, Von Freeman, Teddy Edwards, Mike Stern...
The club was situated in and old renovated stable. I remember when Tony Williams was there , Juul called the Police of the city to warn them that they could receive calls from neighbours due to the loudness of Tony's playing. All musicians knew Jules, even the younger generations as Roy Hargrove, Vincent Herring...
He was always triving to get the best musicians in his club even if he knew if he wouldn't make any benefit for the club, on the contrary, he always had to put some personnel money into it...
R.I.P. Juul! Thanks for the great concerts!

Dave McKenna R.I.P.

Just got this in the mailbox :

"Dave McKenna passed away peacefully late last night. As some of you know he'd been sidelined for the past few years -- living out in Pennsylvania close to his son Steve. Worsening conditions from diabetes and other issues kept him from playing in recent
years. It was cancer that finally did him in."
