Hans Meelen the fellow who made Stochelo and Jimmy Rosenberg famous passed away last week (11/11/2008). He was instrumental in helping a whole bunch of gypsy jazz musicians out. It was thank to him that wawau played samois in 2003.
That's sad news man. I remember meeting him for the first time in samois in 2004, then every other year until he stopped going in 2007
what a friendly guy
