Robert Jeanne discovered jazz in the 50s, through the records of Charlie Parker. His first outings were with amateur bands in 1952, before playing regularly as a trio with René Thomas and Jacques Pelzer in Belgium and Germany. He created the New Jazz Quintet with trumpet player Milou Struvay in 1959, appearing at the first Comblain-la-Tour jazz festival. He created a quartet with Léo Flechet, Jean Lerusse and Félix Simtaine in 1960. It proved incredibly long-lived and played numerous times with Thomas and Pelzer, as well as soloists such as Chet Baker, Bill Coleman, Dizzy Reece, Dusko Gojkovich and Slide Hampton.

Between 1967 and 1969, he played many concerts in Belgium and France with René Thomas and JR Monterose. From 1971 to 1973, he worked with the American trumpet player Charlie Green as part of Jack Van Poll’s Cosa Nostra. In the seventies, he also played in many high-profile Belgian projects such as Solis Lacus (Michel Herr and Richard Rousselet), Félix Simtaine’s Act Big Band and Saxo Mille, a marvellous selection of sax-players brought together in a homage to Jaspar/Thomas. There was also some more experimental work with Frank Wuyst’s Karaa Boulband and Koene Debruyne. His first album as a leader, “Second Live”, was released in 1983.

His quartet slowly started to change as musicians such as Pirli Zurstrassen, Erik Vermeulen, Sal La Rocca, José Bedeur and Frédéric Jacquemin came and went. He joined the Chapuis Street Big Band in 1994 and the Jazz Addiction Band (an octet created by Mimi Verderame) in 1996. He also toured with Verderame in a quartet in Senegal and Nicaragua.
