Sweet Pussycat: By the Morgan James Duo

Back in the 1960’s, the UK had many very talented singers and musicians, especially in the jazz field. Tubby Hayes was a world-class sax, flute, piano player and arranger.

While Americans were distracted by the juvenile music of the Beatles, really good British singing groups were too grown-up and talented to get attention.

One such vocal group was the Morgan James Duo. Colin James played guitar and Peter Morgan played double bass and the pair regularly backed other singers on recording sessions. They also recorded as a duo, mostly light-hearted jazz material, including ‘The Girl From Ipanema’. In 1966 they recorded ‘Sweet Pussycat’. Great harmonies, appealing individual voices, perfect timing, good orchestration. Better than anything the Beatles ever did!  Strongly recommended! If anyone knows what happened to these two talented musicians, contact the website.
