Maine Street Jazzmen @ Rosie's (Rosie Malone's, South Shields.)

Olive Rudd (vcl), Iain MacAulay (tmb/tpt/vcl), Jim McBriarty (cly/vcl), Malcolm Armstrong (pno), Alan Rudd (bs), Mike Humble (dms).
I'd been away for a couple of weeks so it was pleasant coming back 'home'.
Although Herbie was away, Iain proved an admirable dep on trombone and vocal even trumpet although not harmonica.
Most of the band vocals were done by Jim who shone on Avalon amongst others.
Olive was in great form particularly on How'd Ya Like to Love Me? a Burton Lane tune made famous by Maxine Sullivan and more familiar to me by Becky Kilgore. Olive did it justice. Others included Lock My Heart and Throw Away the Key, Blue Skies, Some of These Days...
A really enjoyable afternoon, not least because of the very pleasant company of Val - The Facebook Thrush - and her friend Pat.
Lance.
