Fatty George: Struttin´ With Some Barbecue#
When he opened his own Jazz club Fatty´s Saloon in the center of
Vienna, a new phase in the life of the clarinetist, Fatty George (Franz
Georg Pressler, 1927 - Vienna - 1982) began. Shortly thereafter (1959),
his programs became quickly popular as the result of radio advertising.
His unmistakeable style was enthusiastically received as swinging
Mainstream Jazz, as an Austrian synthesis of international Jazz streams.
The illustration shows Fatty George as a musician; the musical example
presents an original recording of Struttin´ With Some Barbecue and
lets you hear something of the typical Saloon atmosphere - suggested
by certain sounds, rhythms and melodies -, which fascinated the
audiences of the 60's. (M. Saary)
