"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, lovers of blues and soul music
and tourists, 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. Merci Beaucoup. Fantastique Jacquet !
    Sinon, je pense que les bugs n'ont rien à voir avec toi puisque j'ai eu le même pb avec un fichier venant d'ailleurs. j'ai retéléchargé le fichier et là tout fonctionne. Je l'ai converti en MP4 avec une autre appli (Max au lieu de all2 MP3), mais j'avais constaté que cela buggait aussi avec des fichiers déjà en MP3. Donc, je ne sais pas du tout ce qui se passe. Surement Itunes !!

  2. Illinois Jacquet Spectrum 1965

    [original mono vinyl]is the rip I made.

    This is a rather underrated and quite unappreciated side by Illinois Jacquet , one of the very last original Argos before the sudden switchover to Cadet which I find myself returning to and listening to more and more these days. Ostensibly a mostly straight ahead side by the legendary tenor man Jacquet, there's a nice melodic groove underpinning the whole LP which is quite appealing. Side A is essentially an abbreviated big band date with nice arrangements of mostly contemporary movie themes, while Side B is a more intimate small group date which is cut in the same melodic groove vein. Excellent fidelity off the original Argo mono deep groove vinyl.

  3. With only an uptobox link, I can not access your kind offer. Thanks anyway.

    1. try this link and let me know :

  4. Yes, the link does work, very kind of you. Funny thing, I have an account with that file storage service. For some reason, it doesn't recognize me on these links, so I have to wait an hour between downloads. Odd, but I'm able to access offers, an hour at a time. Thank you for maintaining groove addict and keeping it interesting.
