A brief overview from the biography of Jan Menu
After his education at the Utrecht Conservatory on tenor saxophone, he won the prestigious Loosdrecht Jazz Competition in 1989 and received the Wessel Ilcken Prize, now better known as the Buma Boy Edgar Prize. After many successes with the tenor saxophone, including eleven years in the "Jazz Orchestra of the Concertgebouw", he eventually turned to the baritone saxophone and is now regarded as a leading player on this instrument.
With guitarist Maarten van der Grinten and double bassist Jan Voogd, Jan Menu has been forming the chamber jazz trio DIG d'DIZ for twenty years.
DIG d'DIZ is generally seen as one of the most interesting Dutch groups.
With the trio of Greetje Kauffeld, Jan Menu played throughout Europe and the US, and recorded three CDs. He is also a member of singer Laura Fygi's band, with whom he toured all over the world.
