Georgie Fame: Look Sharp
Lois Wilson, MOJO, November 2015
IT'S DECEMBER 1962, three sharp dressed GIs are hefting a Hammond organ down the icy steps of the Flamingo, a tiny jazz club on Wardour Street in London. The instrument's owner and club's resident bandleader, Georgie Fame, a 19-year-old blues and jazz fan, who has already backed Gene Vincent as a member of the Larry Parnes stable, is inside, tuning in to the hep sounds of Jimmy Smith, Richard "Groove" Holmes and Booker T. emanating from a Dansette turntable by the side of the stage.
