Bebop Spoken There

John McLaughlin: "I had just recently hooked up with Billy Cobham on the Jack Johnson album with Miles. And I loved the way Billy played. We got really tight after that. So he was the first guy I called [when I formed Mahavishnu Orchestra)." - (JazzTimes July/August 2021)

The Things They Say!

Maine Street Jazzmen @ Rosie's (Rosie Malone's, South Shields.) - Episode 65.

Olive Rudd (vcl), Herbie Hudson (tmb/hca/vcl), Jim McBriarty (clt), Malcolm Armstrong (pno), Alan Rudd (bs), Mike Humble (dms).
There are times - when Herbie blows harp - that these boys are just about as good a Blues Band as they are a Dixieland outfit. Such a time was on See See Rider when Herbie stretched his Hohner 270 to the limits. On the same number, he did similar things to his vocal chords backed up by Mr Barrel-house himself Malcolm Armstrong. Jim blew some gutsy clarinet but this was one number where he should have had his tenor sax in the back pocket.
Olive Shimmied like her Sister Kate and it wasn't wishful thinking. But Jeepers Creepers! She's Locked Her Heart and Threw Away the Key again. You've got the picture - another good day at the office.
Lance.
