Jan Cornelis Meijer, better known as Johnny Meijer, was born on October 1st 1912 in the famous Jordaan district of Amsterdam. Those were difficult days and there was very little money, but in spite of the poverty the family was very happy. It was Johnny's father who first recognised his musical talents and sent him to music lessons. At the age of 14, Johnny became a member of an accordion trio which went under the name of 'Van Dijks Origineele Volendammers'. Dressed in authentic Volendam costume he earned his first money as a musician. At the age of 18 Johnny left the trio to join the accordion quartet the 'Four Serenaders'. Dressed as sailors the success of the Four Serenaders extended beyond the Dutch borders and as a result of their popularity they made their first recordings. Johnny, having tasted success, decided to branch out on his own under the name of Johnny Meijer. Until the mid thirties Johnny's repertoire consisted of all the popular songs and melodies of the time, but there was about to be a big change when Johnny got hooked on American Jazz. From that moment on this was the music Johnny wanted to play and with which he became famous, not just in Holland but also well beyond its borders. In 1946 the Decca Record Company managed to persuade him to record medleys from Gershwins' 'Rhapsody in Blue'. Thanks to the popularity of these recordings his international career took flight and in 1951 he even managed to win the famous 'Roi d'Accordeon' in Paris with a compulsory piece by Bach. During his regular radio appearances the Bach piece became one of his most requested pieces of music. Despite his busy schedule Johnny managed to make several more recordings. In the fifties he encountered some ups and downs and whilst he received more and more requests to play music from the Jordaan, he still managed to make many recordings amongst which there are several with the Dutch Swing College Band. Despite offers from all over the world Johnny remained faithful to Amsterdam. During the mid sixties he had great success in the bar San Remo, which was situated on the famous Rembrandtplein. At the age of 78 Johnny recorded his last album `Body and Soul'. After this he made one more appearance at 'Het Concertgebouw', but by now he was so weak that he found it hard to carry the weight of his accordion. Tracklisting: In Jazzcafe "Bij Max" (1988): 1.
