François van de Linde

I write for a number of magazines including Jazz Journal UK and Jazzism. For Concertzender, I produce the monthly radio show Groove & Grease, a reflection of my passion for soul jazz.

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 my blog and dedicated to hard bop, soul jazz and Hammond grooves. Flophouse Magazine shines a light on both legends and unsung heroes, landmark recordings and obscure releases.

I hope you enjoy my reviews, interviews and lots of other groovy stuff I'm 'talkin' about'. I’m not a seller. It’s strictly for kicks. May the flame of classic jazz keep burning!
