Maine Street Jazzmen @ Rosie Malone's

Olive Rudd (vcl), Herbie Hudson (tmb/vcl/hca), Jim McBriarty (clt/vcl), Malcolm Armstrong (pno), Alan Rudd (bs), Tommy Graham (dms).
When the band kicked off with "Avalon" and followed up with "Rockaby Your Baby With a Dixie Melody" I feared we were in for an afternoon of Al Jolson. However, Herbie, who never misses a trick, whipped an X-Factor winner Joe McElderry face mask in front of his own aging features to bring us right up to date.
Olive didn't need any face masks - she looks permanently young (ish) and was in good voice working out on her current faves "Keeping Out of Mischief Now", "Swing That Music", "Wrap Your Troubles in Dreams", "All of Me".
Instrumentally, "Sweet Georgia Brown" stood out with Herbie excelling on chrom. harp. Malcolm rolled out the barrel-house and Jimmy Mac blew with an urbane sophistication that kept the music just outside of the trad zone.
All in all, a pleasant afternoon in congenial company. However, a wintry blast and a cancelled Metro going home persuaded me not to drive to Blaydon tonight.
My apologies to Roly and co.
Lance.
