Randy Brecker: "It's still a thrill for me today to stand out front of a big band as the soloist and hear all that sound going on behind you. It brings the best out of me" - (DownBeat June 2019).

Maine St. Jazzmen @ Rosie Malone's

Ray Harley (tpt), Herbie Hudson (tmb/hca/vcl), Jim McBriarty (clt), Malcolm Armstrong (pno), Alan Rudd (bs), Tommy Graham (dms), Olive Rudd (vcl).
Close your eyes and you could be in Eddie Condon's club back in the 1940's. Open your eyes and you find you're not!
Nevertheless, the music is of the same quality; hard driving, happy, Dixieland - or should we call it 'Rosieland'?
As in previous weeks, it is a foot-tapping experience not to be missed - if you can tell me better ways of spending a Thursday afternoon I want to know (or maybe I don't!)
Today saw the band blowing full-blooded takes on "After You've Gone", "Buddy Bolden" etc whilst Olive provided the words to "Sentimental Journey" and "I Double Dare You" amongst others.
It was a typical rollicking Rosie's afternoon - real ales still £2 a pint and such delicacies on the bar as Black Pudding, Cheese, Sausages, Pickled Onions and Pickled customers to tempt the tastebuds.
For those living further afield, the Maine Street Jazzmen play Leeds Jazz Club on Tuesday Feb, 16. A coach from Tyneside is being organised @ £15 per head return. Sounds like a good day out.
Interested parties contact band members.
Lance.
