"weet zelfs raad"

Post by sscalix » Mon Feb 11, 2013 4:09 pm

Please can someone help me with this one?
What does the expression "weet zelfs raad" mean?
I found the sentence in this context: "John weet zelfs raad met de bekende Bolero van Ravel".
Thanks in advance!

"He even knows what to do with ..."

"Raad" means council, a good plan, a good idea, a fix, a solution etc.
