Madeline and Georgie Fame with the Jazz Orchestra of the Concertegebow.
It was 1985 that Georgie Fame (my surrogate brother) called to ask if I would be interested in a project that he and Steve Gray(d) were writing for radio in The Netherlands. If I agreed they also wanted me to be the 'mannequin' on which they could hang the story. The studio recording with Het Metropol Orkestra was never released and we were lucky to perform the mini-opera in 2003 in Tilburg, NL.
In May 2012 The Jazz Orchestra of the Concertgebouw said "let's do it!" What we have now is a 'trailer' of that performance.
The CD will be released on April 7th 2014.
