Bebop Spoken There

Dave Cliff: "I was doing a boring day job for an electric company [NEEB]. It was office work, boring. I hated it. That was the stimulus to get out" – (Jazz Review December 2001).

Bob Kaper: "After maybe a month on the road you might say, ok, let's go home now. But, after a week, you want to get back out again!" – (Jazz Review December 2001).

Everything's Rosy at Rosie's (Malone's)

Herbie Hudson (tmb/hca/vcl), Barry Soulsby (clt/vcl), Malcolm Armstrong (pno), Alan Rudd (bs), Ollie Rillands (dms).
Although there was no Olive this week and Barry Soulsby depped for Derek Fleck (and Olive?) it was still business as usual as the Maine Streeters played their usual brand of trumpetless Chicago style jazz. to a decent sized crowd. It is rare to see any of the jazz fraternity in Rosies but, nevertheless, they seem to enjoy it in a noisy sort of way.
I recall a story of the River City, back in the days of Joe Shenton, castigating an audience that was listening so intently you could have heard a beat drop. Joe addressed the audience and said, "For Gawd's sake make some noise we're getting nervous!"
In the absence of a trumpet, Herbie soloed on both trombone and harmonica as well as doing the vocal on "Do You Know What It Means To Miss New Orleans?" whilst still leaving room for Barry to grab some and Malcolm, the keyboard mercifully hiding his shorts-clad legs from the ladies present, to play some authentic sounding backing.
A pleasant afternoon.
Lance.
Note: The band starts an additional new venue next Wednesday lunchtime at the Lambton Arms, Eighton Banks, Gateshead 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm.

About this blog - contact details.

Bebop Spoken Here -- Here, being the north-east of England -- centred in the blues heartland of Newcastle and reaching down to the Tees Delta and looking upwards to the Land of the Kilt.
Not a very original title, I know; not even an accurate one as my taste, whilst centred around the music of Bird and Diz, extends in many directions and I listen to everything from King Oliver to Chick Corea and beyond. Not forgetting the Great American Songbook the contents of which has provided the inspiration for much great jazz and quality popular singing for round about a century.
The idea of this blog is for you to share your thoughts and pass on your comments on discs, gigs, jazz - music in general. If you've been to a gig/concert or heard a CD that knocked you sideways please share your views with us. Tell us about your favourites, your memories, your dislikes.
