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...."

GENE BARGE DANCE WITH DADDY "G"

CHECKER RECORDS 1965                                   LP 2994


Saxophonist / bandleader / producer / arranger / songwriter.

Barge achieved some notoriety in 1957 by blowing a haunting, distinctive solo on 
Chuck Willis's "C.C. Rider", a # 1 R&B hit. A later session with Chuck Willis in 
October 1957 provided another fine sax solo on "Betty and Dupree". King Curtis 
was clearly influenced by Barge. By 1960, Gene was working for the Legrand label 
in Norfolk, which was founded in 1958 by Frank Guida and Joe Royster. From his 
jazz and R&B connections, Guida assembled a group of local musicians to form a 
house band for Legrand's recording sessions. Barge and the aforementioned Nabs 
Shields were among them, alongside pianist Willie Burnell, trombonist Leonard 
Barks, bass player Ron "Junior" Fairley, guitarist Wayne Beckner and another 
tenor sax man, Earl Swanson, who was married to Ruth Brown at the time. It was 
this group, minus Swanson and Burnell, that recorded the instrumental "A Night 
With Daddy G (Parts 1 & 2)" in 1960. Co-written by Barge, Guida and Royster, 
the record (Legrand 1004) bubbled under the Billboard Hot 100 in February 1961 
and was credited to The Church Street Five. "Daddy G" became Barge's nickname.
