When I was a student of Cultural
Anthropology I devoted my final year to a study on the
socio-economic position of professional jazz musicians in the
informal Amsterdam jazz scene. I had already been working as a
manager of a jazz club for many years and had therefore easy access
to the musicians and the places they hung out. Based on my research
I wrote my MA thesis and published an article in the Boekmancahier
(both in Dutch).

Het informele jazzcircuit. Over het grote
belang van kleine informele podia.
Pag. 207-218, Boekmancahier nummer 37, september 1998.
