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).
Usual afternoon of fun-filled jazz with Olive in good voice having just broken the speed limit on "Just Friends" - it worked! "Back in Your Own Backyard" was taken at a more sedate tempo. Herbie worked out on "Sweet Lorraine"
whilst Jim's piece of resistance was "Nobody's Sweetheart".
Usual powerpiano from Malcolm with Tommy and Alan driving it all along.
Olive sang "When Your Smiling" but, having just learned of the death of Darren Grainger I wasn't in smiling mode. This has been a week and a half - two deaths and a heart attack...
