Piano-player Willem Kühne says, “His music contains all sorts of homemade anomalies; he hasn’t been inhibited by all sorts of studies. Improvising on his music, we discover completely different things than we would playing standards. Sometimes these pieces really surprise us: I really respect his composing for that. You can’t sing along with his lines, but when you hear one, it’s immediately recognizable as his. That’s where his musicality really comes out.” — Willem Kühne

Met ranzig bezwete lijven,
doen we het in vijven.
Als de duivel de mensen in vieren kooit,
wed ik, dan vindt hij ons nooit!
