Hello, jazz, swing and rock are my preferred genres of music. There is already one older thread about Dutch rock, so I want to ask about the other two genres: What are some good Dutch jazz/swing songs?

I don't think we really have much of those genres, at least not in our native tongue!

The only Dutch jazz artist that comes to my mind is Candy Dulfer (she's a well-known saxophonist), but her music (when there are lyrics) is in English. Here's a list of many of her tracks: https://www.last.fm/music/Candy+Dulfer/+tracks. Here's a site I found which lists what appear to be mostly Dutch jazz musicians: https://www.last.fm/tag/dutch+jazz/artists.

I don't know a lot of Dutch jazz, but a quick search combining my memory and the internet gave me the following. :)

Vrije Geluiden is a show on TV with live performances including jazz (both Dutch and non-Dutch performers). Below a Vrije Geluiden playlist and a few famous Dutch songs:
