Bebop Spoken There

Ethan Iverson: "Oscar Peterson famously said that Bud [Powell] played just too many wrong notes. He was really critical of Bud as a player, which I think is not right." - (DownBeat March 2021)

HAPPY BIRTHDAY JOHN FORSTER & CAROLINE STEPHEN

Thursday, November 11, 2010

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

Ray Harley (tpt), Herbie Hudson (tmb/hca/vcl), Jim McBriarty (clt/sop), Malcolm Armstrong (pno), Alan Rudd (bs), Mike Humble (dms), Olive Rudd (vcl).
Having been exploring the Lunar Landscape of music with AVC it was down to earth and, if not quite back to the Delta certainly to the upper reaches of the Mississippi with the Maine Street Jazzmen.
Culture shock it may seem to some but to me it was just moving from one room to another. Both comfortable rooms just different views.
Bill Shaw, celebrating one of his many birthdays, informed me I'd just missed a version of Mahogany Hall Stomp to rival that by Armstrong and Kid Ory.
Maybe. The band were certainly going for it as was Olive when she laid out I Thought About You.
Sing like that Olive and I'll never stop thinking about you!
The Weary Blues wasn't tiring at all - for the listener - and Olive's Soon reminded me just what a great number the old Gershwin song is.
Lance.
