Eric Ineke started his career in the sixties
Drummers like Philly Joe Jones and Elvin Jones were his inspiration. In 1969 he made his first record with Ferdinand Povel. From the seventies on Eric played in the legendary Rein de Graaff/Dick Vennik Quartet, The Ben van den Dungen/Jarmo Hoogendijk Quintet and The Piet Noordijk Quartet. During his career he recorded numerous CD’s and toured with many great American jazz musicians like Dexter Gordon, Johnny Griffin, George Coleman, Al Cohn, Jimmy Raney, Barry Harris, Eric Alexander, Grant Stewart and David Liebman.
He teaches at the jazz department of the Royal Conservatoire in The Hague and is giving Masterclasses over the whole world.
On April 1, 2017, Ineke turned 70 and celebrated this with a ‘Eric Ineke 70 Super Jam’ in the Bimhuis, Amsterdam. During the first half of the concert, Female Deputy Mayor of the Amsterdam city council Simone Kukenheim honored Ineke with a Knightage in the ‘Orde van Oranje Nassau’ for his unbridled dedication to the Dutch Jazz scene.
