Bebop Spoken There

Tina May: "It's a broad umbrella, jazz, but to me there has to be improvisation. If that's not there, to me, it's not really jazz." - (Jazzwise March 2021)

Archive quotes.

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

Olive Rudd (vocals and varifocals), Herbie Hudson (tmb/hca/vcl), Jim McBriarty (clt/vcl), Malcolm Armstrong (pno), Alan Rudd (bs), Mike Humble (dms).
Another rip-roaring afternoon in Rosie's with Mrs Rudd - looking stylish in new designer frames that matched her striking noiré et blanc outfit cheekily shrouded by a grey cardi - strutting her stuff on I Thought About You, Lock My Heart and Throw Away the Key, You Can Depend on Me...
Herbie played Sweet Georgia Brown on harmonica and really impressed. He also brought Turk Murphy to mind on Peoria and Jack Teagarden on A Hundred Years From Today - great tune. Jim took Who's Sorry Now on a vocal trip garnishing it with some liquorice along the way. Piano bass and drums did what piano bass and drums are supposed to do and they did it good.
Lance.
PS: Review of the band's latest CD will be posted soon.
