OBITUARY – JACKY JUNE


JACKY JUNE (1928-2012)
A footnote in Belgian jazz history.
My friend Claude in Brussels sent me a mail earlier today : En écoutant l'émission de Marc Danval hier, j'ai appris le décès de Jacky June (ou Jun, comme l'écrit Pernet dans sa disco). Et, toujours selon Pernet, son vrai nom serait Jean-Jacques Junne.  Jacky June est décédé le 28 septembre 2012.  

There is a short biography, written by Marc Danval, in the Dictionnaire du Jazz à Bruxelles et en Wallonie but nothing on Jacky June on the Lundis d’Hortense website.

A clarinetist in the old style, Jacky June recorded as a member of  the JUMP COLLEGE (Polydor, 1965).
