Lee on Fats Domino

Lee on Fats Domino

I was living in Luton at the time I acquired my first Tenor Sax. There was a resurgence of all things Fifties, at the Cinema it was Lords of Flatbush, Badlands & American Graffiti.
Fashion was, other than Soul boys & Disco (with punk round the corner) very 50’s again, Filp & the Flea Market was importing American retro bowling jackets shirts & trousers at reasonable prices. Sha na na, Rocky Sharpe & the Razors (later Darts) & of course Bazooka Joe were playing a genre of music that I was drawn toward & that featured a lot of Saxophone. Fats Domino, Little Richard & Coasters inspired me to take up Sax. I spent a lot of hours in front of the mirror mimicking, if not mastering, a lot of Fats Domino tracks. His music & certainly his Saxophonist session men inspired me no end. Kansas City & Shu Rah were personal favourites that, I hope to record/ perform one of these days.
