Now 75, Georgie Fame lives in Sweden and regularly tours the UK and Europe with his two sons Tristan and James, who play in his band.

In the 60’s, he was the “real deal,” Britain’s only authentic rhythm and blues performer and if you were ‘hip’ in swingin’ London, you wanted to be where it was ‘happening’ and that invariably meant where Fame was performing. His “live” debut album “Rhythm and Blues at the Flamingo” is a tour de force and a welcome recent addition to my vinyl collection.

By the end of the decade, as Georgie became more pop orientated, tastes in music changed and record sales fell away. Shifting gears in the early 70’s, he woud work with fellow musician and close friend Alan Price, the former keyboard player for The Animals. The successful duo had a very popular TV series and chart success with “Rosseta.”

Georgie reformed the Blue Flames in 1974, and continued to work as a singer working with many of Europe’s finest orchestras and big bands. He also became a successful “jingle” writer and composed the music for the feature films “Entertaining Mr. Sloane” and “The Alf Garnett Saga.”

His stage name, given to then 16-year-old Clive Powell by impresario Larry Parnes back in 1959, speaks of a whole other era, quaintly combining the parochial with the aspirational. He did indeed become famous, scoring number one hit singles and his own TV show, but his Hammond organ driven mix of R’n’B, jazz, soul and romantic balladry was already a throwback to another era amidst the Beat boom and psychedelic frenzy of the Sixties. His easy-on-the-ear grooviness; distinctive off-tone singing; playful, witty lyrics and sheer love of the music have kept him going, until he has become part of Britain’s musical furniture.

Whether gigging with Van Morrison, Bill Wyman’s Rhythm Kings or tearing the house up at Ronnie Scotts with his solo act, Georgie still has it in spades.
