RARITY # 47

THE KEES KUYT COMBO –NL, 1957

EP 45 rpm FONTANA 463 110 TE      

Onxidlib was lucky to get a copy of this rather rare Dutch EP.  I have not  found much info on the web.  Basically nothing on guitarist Kees Kuyt, a couple of poor quality video featuring vibeman Leen Dijkkamp (with swing accordionist Peter Schoute),

Henk de Jong recorded with the Diamonds (Jazz from Holland, 1956).

They were among a handfull of local bands that played the first set in a Louis Armstrong concert in 1959, in Holland.   Read here (nice picture of Kees Kuyt Combo live).


Check here for a live video feat. Leen Dijkkamp and Peter Schoute (1994): http://www.yourepeat.com/watch/?v=ZbSbE45_xa4

(ep rip) The ep had been posted earlier  on the Dutch Jazz (private) blog.  This one is a different rip.

The only other trace of Kees Kuyt Combo I’ve found is another very rare EP with Gospel vocalist Donald Jones.
Donald Jones  with the Kees Kuyt Combo - This World He Loves
(Philips 422 497 PE, Holland, 1960).  If anyone had a copy, I’ll gladly post it with due acknowledgement of the source.
