Hamlet without the Prince of Denmark (Portugal) - even Ophelia has gone for an early bath nevertheless...

Jim McBriarty (clt.sop/vcl), Herbie Hudson (tmb/hca/vcl), Malcolm Armstrong (pno), Alan Rudd (bs), Mike Humble (dms).
...Rosencrantz and Guildenstern in the form of Herbie and Jim ensured there was no retreat - backed up as they were by Polonius, Horatio and Laertes - they held strong and there was, forsooth, many a roundelay from R and G to caress the ear drums.
This was a different Thursday afternoon at Rosie Malone's, South Shields and very much a Back to the Delta day.
To compensate for Ray Harley's absence, Jimmy Mack's soprano playing added a different dimension. Nice one Jim - Honeysuckle Rose ne'er did give such pleasing odour.
Equally Sweet was Lorraine. I just love the changes on that song - it's one of those tunes where the harmony is better than the melody! (Well that's what I think!) Herbie blew some nice harp on this one Rumour had it that Olive was babysitting - I didn't even know she was preggers! As for Ray, one can only assume that the ever increasing workload of the Maine Street Jazzmen is taking its toll - I think they are free between 4 and 5am on January 27, 2014.
Despite the above, it was still an enjoyable session
Lance.
