Huub Janssen - I’ve found a new baby. 1976
Huub Janssen drums with the Dutch Swing College Band. Leader Peter Schilperoort soprano sax, Bert de Kort cornet, Bob Kaper alto sax, Dick Kaart trombone, Jaap van Kempen guitar, Henk Bosch van Drakensteyn bass.
Together with Italian drummer Charly Antolini, British drummer Peter York, Huub Janssen belongs to the top European drummers. Particularily special is his perception and approach. This with en inborn sense of humor together with his visual effects makes him even more outstanding and puts him in a class apart with drummer Jo Jones. Huub is a totally fascinating performer and of the drummers I have seen and heard I personally rank him among the world’s very best.
