Maine Street Jazzmen at Rosie Malone's

Olive Rudd (vcl), Ray Harley (tpt), Jim McBriarty (clt/sop), Herbie Hudson (tmb/hca/vcl), Malcolm Armstrong (pno), Alan Rudd (bs), Mike Humble (dms).
A typical afternoon at Rosie 's with all the gang going for it. Herbie was in an impish mood - witness his vocal on Sunnyside of the Street; "I'm a rover, woof woof, who's crossed over"!
Olive, these days, seems to be rationed. Lock Away My Heart, Don't Mean A Thing, Hard Hearted Hannah were the few pearls she threw to us swine - we want more Olive. The petition will be going round next week.
Band numbers included Big Butter and Egg Man, Please Don't Talk About Me When I'm Gone and the earthy C-C Rider with Herbie on harp and Jimmy on Soprano.
Another splendid afternoon.
Lance.

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.
