We are pleased to inform you that Lean also likes to dedicate himself to the foundation.
Lean also knew Rick personally and was deeply touched when he heard that Rick had died.
Inspired by drummers like Tony Williams and Steve Gadd, Lean is determined to study Jazz in Rotterdam. Here he is in contact with Joost Kroon and came to Leona Philippo through him and he joined among others at New Cool Collective.
In 2010 he becomes the regular drummer of Alain Clark and he plays the following years with artists like Ali B., Sandra van Nieuwland, Sven Hammond Soul, DO and Edsilia Rombley. Nowadays, Lean is a regular drummer of Waylon.
