Pim Jacobs with Hank Mobley and Wes Montgomery

I came across this remarkable clip on Youtube. It was posted by bass player Ruud Jacobs, who was part of this classic session that was recorded for Dutch National Radio in the 1960s. Besides Ruud on bass, it features Hank Mobley on tenor, Pim Jacobs (Ruud's brother) on piano, Han Bennink on drums and Wim Overgaauw on guitar. Vintage Dutch jazz!

By the way, I take it most of you guys already know of the classic Pim Jacobs Trio recordings with Wes Montgomery in 1965. Same group basically but without Wim on guitar of course. Pretty amazing stuff.
