THE DIAMONDS FIVE (NL)
45 rpm EP OMEGA (Dutch band, Belgium label, 1959)
Fellow blogger Peer57 who runs the Dutch Jazz (private) blog has shared some records with us. If you are a visitor to his blog(s), you probably know these records already. If not, enjoy them here while they last. We’ll start with a fairly rare and collectible EP recorded in Brussels, in 1959, by one of the better-known groups of Dutch Boppers, the Diamond Five. Great music!
Pianist Cees Slinger was the frontman of the famous Dutch harbop-quintet "Diamond Five". They used the Amsterdam jazzclub "Sheherazade" as their base, and played there night after night.
