Bebop Spoken There

Avishai Cohen (trumpet): "This is my main thing right now: Live in the here and now, take things one day at a time. I'm stopping everything I can, and stripping everything to the bone. I'm spending a lot of time listening to music, playing, going for walks, enjoying my kids." - (DownBeat June 2020).

Dave Rempis:Ten years from now, I can see musicians streaming concerts in real time and charging a minimal amount for people to watch.” - (DownBeat September 2013)

Maine Street Jazzmen @ Rosie Malone's

Ray Harley (tpt), Herbie Hudson (tmb/vcl/hca), Brian Carrick (clt/ten), Malcolm Armstrong (pno), Alan Rudd (bs), Tommy Graham (dms), Olive Rudd (vcl).
After their triumphant tour of Leeds, the Maine Street boys and girl came out to play at Rosie Malone's today with a surprise guest on clarinet - Brian Carrick depping for Jim McBriarty. Playing a steel clarinet that it is said once belonged to New Orleans legend George Lewis Brian gets that vintage sound so beloved of the purists with perhaps a touch of Sidney Bechet's soprano added.
He also played equally vintage tenor giving us an indication of what Coleman Hawkins may have sounded like before he joined Fletcher Henderson.
However, with Ray Harley blowing trumpet there was no danger of returning too close to the Delta and the result was their usual driving Dixieland.
Olive, as per, was in good voice, Herbie joined her for a vocal duo on Deed I Do as well as soloing on trombone and harmonica.
Malcolm Armstrong, a tower of strength on piano ably abetted by Alan and Tommy.
Oh and, in the absence of buddies B and M, I won a bottle of California's finest in the raffle!
A convivial afternoon. There were even ladies dancing!
