SERGE DUHAYON (LA GLANERIE, 1940 -), PRESS DRAWER, CARICATURIST" - "Marc Danval, I presume...". Charcoal drawing and black ink. 20 x 28 cm. Amusing caricature in which Marc Danval's face is represented by the "Encyclopédie du Jazz". Marc Danval Collection Marc Danval (Ixelles, 18.2.1937 - 22.9.2022). Marc Danval, grandson of José Sevenants (1868-1946) and son of Fernand Sevenants (1901-1992), both pianists, professors at the Brussels Conservatory and composers, was bathed in melodious and favorable waves. From an early age, he was hooked on jazz, and bought his first 78 rpm record at the age of 9! The record featured an interpretation of Ray Bauduc and Rob Haggard's "Rempart du Sud" by pianist and bandleader Stan Brenders (1904-1969), an important figure in Belgian jazz in the '40s. The seeds of the collection virus had been sown... At the end of the 50s, Marc Sevenants treaded the boards of Brussels theaters; it was then, to avoid confusion with his cousin, Maurice Sevenants, also an actor, that he decided to take the name Marc Danval. In 1958, during his military service, jazz-loving listeners heard his voice on "La demi-heure du soldat" on Radio I.N.R., the forerunner of RTB. He went on to host the program "Jazz pour les troupes". This earned him a jail term in the military prison, as he had failed to warn his army superior! He also wrote for a number of magazines, sharing his passion for music. Doyen of the RTB airwaves, he hosted the program "La troisième oreille" from 1998 onwards, during which he had a consummate art for distilling little forgotten treasures accompanied by tasty commentaries and anecdotes. An indefatigable jack-of-all-trades and "epicurean", as Michäel Albas so aptly called him, Danval also left a wealth of gastronomic reviews. Here are some of the last witnesses to his passions: autographs, autographed photos, menus...
