François van de Linde

Ever since my teenage years I’ve been collecting vinyl, loving and enjoying the art of modern jazz and sixties music in particular. Classic sleeve design makes my heart skip a bee. Flophouse Magazine is dedicated to hard bop, soul jazz and Hammond grooves. Flophouse Magazine shines a light on both legends and underappreciated heroes, landmark recordings and obscure releases.

I hope you enjoy my reviews and interviews. Stay in tune with groovy news through the Talkin' About section. I’m not a seller. It’s strictly for kicks. May the flame of classic jazz keep burning!

Listen to my soul jazz radio show Groove & Grease at Concertzender every third Tuesday of the month.

My fictional work - a novel, short stories, poetry - is published in The Netherlands. I work a day job and write about jazz in the evening, when the sun goes down.
