Georgie Fame: Cool Cat Blues
At last! ... British blues legend Georgie Fame finally has his Magnum Opus committed to the stuff we all love. Contained within is a collection of Blues, Jazz and R&B standards mixed with some originals. This musicians' musician is backed by a world class band including Steve Gadd, Robben Ford, Richard Tee, Will Lee, Ralph MacDonald, Hugh McCracken and an uber horn section. Fame's classy, economic Hammond and great voice inspires superb duets with Bozz Scaggs and Richard Tee. Van Morrison, Fame's erstwhile boss, joins him on "Moondance" and one of his heroes, Jon Hendricks, aids him to fly through "Little Pony". There is a slowed down, super sexy "Yeah,Yeah" and a blistering take on Willie Dixon's "I Love The Life I Live". If you like Brother Ray, Mose Allison, Hoagy Carmichael, Van the Man, Peggy Lee and Lambert, Hendricks & Ross then you'll love this. On an audiophile note, this studio album from 1990 was recorded 'live' with most tracks done in one or two takes, no overdubs and entirely in the analogue domain. A great album, beautifully recorded, finally done justice on two slabs of 180g by Pure Pleasure.
