Take two world famous violinists one "Jazz" and one "Classical"and you
have a great L/P that is fantastic....I've always liked Jazz violin and they
both perform together perfectly...It was a successful partnership that they made
quite a few L/P's together.... P.S a great musical treat for the "Jazz" & "Classical" fans !!!
This is some of Georgie's early recordings with "The Blue Flames"
1964/65/66...included in this compilation is also his Hit singles...It says on
the back cover that his sound was "Rhythm and Blues"with a "Jazz" influence
otherwise known as "Rockhouse"....Thats a new one on me
!! The Hammond Organ that features in quite a few of the
tracks is played by Georgie....To me its all "Rock n' Roll "!!!
1. Yeh Yeh 2. Sunny 3. Point Of No Return 4. Like We Used To Be 5. Get On The Right Track Baby 6. Outrage 7. Let The Sunshine In
1. Getaway 2. Sitting In The park 3. In The Meantime 4. Something 5. Do Re Mi 6. Sweet Thing 7. Li'l Darlin'
Every track on this Bassey L/P is a good one not a dud one in sight !!...Shirley at her best with a great orchestra behind her arranged & produced by "Johnny Harris"....nothing more to say except just listen !!!
This is one of the most inventive arrangers since the likes of "Ray Conniff" ect ...saying that it's nothing like RC....he seems to be able to incorporate "jazz" "clasical" & "Funk" as well as some of his own sounds to his arrangments...the reference to RC was just to say he is as different at this time as RC was when he first started his "Sound" in the 50s/60's.....If you folks out there have not heard him then do have a listen !!...Caravan / Watusi Strut is 11mins of pure magic !!
