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, 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...."

CANNONBALL ADDERLEY quintet Mercy, Mercy, Mercy! - Live At "The Club"

CAPITOL RECORDS  1966                                ST 2663 

 (Recorded live at "the Club" (formerly the Club De Lisa) 
on State Street in Chicago, Illinois.)....

Mercy, Mercy, Mercy! Live at 'The Club' is a 1966
 album by jazz musician Julian "Cannonball" Adderley. Though the original
 liner notes state that it was recorded at the Club DeLisa in Chicago, 
it was actually recorded at Capitol's Hollywood studio with an
 invited audience and an open bar.
The reason for this discrepancy, , is that Adderley and
the new manager of Club DeLisa (which had been re-named "The Club",
 after operating for years in Chicago under its old name) were friends,
 and Adderley offered to give the club a bit of free publicity.

  Cannonball Adderley - Alto saxophone, leader
    Nat Adderley - Cornet
    Joe Zawinul - Piano, Wurlitzer electric piano
    Victor Gaskin - Bass
    Roy McCurdy - Drums
