"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...."

  1. Hi man,
    If you get a chance and it's not too inconvenient, could you please repost this album. I love Horace Silver, and I would really like to check this album out, especially because Woody Shaw plays on it, and he rocks. Thanks so much for your awesome blog, and if you have anymore Horace Silver, Hank Mobley, Lee Morgan, or Grant Green (especially talkin' about) it would be awesome if you could share. Thanks again for posting all this really great music.
