liberating music

It seems appropriate to celebrate the Dutch 'liberation day' with a compilation of 'dutch successes' of the fifties. More than that I just felt like a sharity. The 10 inch lp is not divided into tracks, it's the opposite: what's so special about this album is that some of the tracks are connected with each other by a pianist, like on other of this kind of compilations was done with applause. I'm not sure how that was done. Technically it was possible with multiple real to real players but I think pianist Gerard van Krevelen played it live while the existing recodings where playing in the studio, or I like to think it, anyway.
Take a listen, you'll find it surprisingly interesting and fun:
