Saxophonist Paul van Kemenade canít be left out.

He did innovative work in Tilburg and is of the adherents of jazz podium Paradox.

More over than 15 years he organizes his festival under the name `Stranger than Paranoia'. and each year he delivers surprises. Particular combinations, totally unknown groups of high quality from most far away corners, thatís his recipe.

More than 25 years he leads his Paul van Kemenade quintet. People such as Jeroen van Vliet and Eric van der Westen† grew up in this quintet.

With the quintet Paul maintains particular links with Africa. Several tours with fantastic†† soloists from Africa were presented to the Dutch audience.

Moreover we find Paul as side-man with Singer Ineke van Doorn, guitarist Jan Kuyper, guitarist Marc van Vugt. Moreover Eric Vloeimans, Harmen Fraanje and Michiel Braam.

Paul received the† VPRO Boy Edgar Award in 1999.
