By Ben Van Dijk – Bass Trombone

The final piece of my new cd “Never Alone” — Ben van Dijk & friends” , “Cancion para Cas”, is composed by myself and has a special meaning.

On July 12th 2009, my wife and I welcomed our first grandchild, Cas van Dijk.

Whenever Cas stays with us, I always play him a little lullaby (Nana in Spanish) on my guitar before bedtime. Cas enjoys his Nana so much that I decided to arrange it into a new piece. “Cancion para Cas” also has additional special meaning to me because Cas’s uncle, my youngest son, Erik , joins me on the other flamenco guitar part. On this piece I play a Thein tenor trombone!

This last composition of the CD also foreshadows my next recording project, a CD of flamenco and jazz-influenced music composed by Ilja Reijngoud and myself.

Here is a sample from “Cancion para Cas”
