read an article on a post Bob Stanley on Guardian

"In the summer, the scene would move en masse to Ostend, Belgium's equivalent to Blackpool. DJ Freddy Cousaert played at the Groove, a late night downstairs bar frequented by US marines, tourists and prostitutes – it was Cousaert who later looked after Marvin Gaye during his 80s sejourn in Ostend. The music he played at the Groove included ska, Latin jazz and even Broadway songs such as Stranger in Paradise, or Whatever Lola Wants from Damn Yankees...."

GERALD WILSON BIG BAND MOMENT OF TRUTH

PACIFIC JAZZ RECORDS 1962                      PJ-61 LP 


In 1960, Wilson formed a Los Angeles-based band that began
a series of superb recordings for the Pacific Jazz label.
Musicians in the band at various times included lead trumpeter
 Snooky Young, trumpeter Carmell Jones,
saxophonists Harold Land, Don Raffell and Teddy Edwards,
 guitarist Joe Pass, vibists Roy Ayers and Bobby
Hutcherson, and drummers Mel Lewis and Mel Lee.
His wife of over fifty years, Josefina Villasenor Wilson, is
