Bebop Spoken There

Alan Barnes: "Normally you can cobble a set together with five guys on the back of an envelope over the first pint and it's just fine. Livestreaming isn't like that." - (Jazzwise July 2021)

Maine Street Jazzmen @ Rosie's

Olive Rudd (vcl), Ray Harley (tpt), Herbie Hudson (tmb/vcl/hca), Jim McBriarty (clt/vcl), Malcolm Armstrong (pno), Alan Rudd (bs), Mike Humble (dms)
The snow is snowing, the wind is blowing, but I can weather the storm, what do I care if icicles form - I've got my love to keep me warm.
The snow was snowing and the wind was blowing and indeed icicles were forming but that was where the song and I parted company. No love to keep me warm just a Men's Beanie bought in the Pound Shop.
Nevertheless, once esconsed in Rosie Malone's with a flagon of the brew that was true and the company of Charles C made for a pleasant afternoon. Jimmy Mack sang Avalon, Herbie sang Red River Valley with different words and Olive wowed with her version of Crazy 'Bout My Baby.
Working Man Blues had some wailing horn from Ray and Herbie trammed and sanged and played harmoni-c-a on Louisian-i-a.
Olive returned for East of the Sun and the band finished off the set with Shimme-Sha-Wobble.
Highlights of the second set included; Pete Kelly's Blues - Charlie gave me a dvd of same to pass on to Bill S - Stevedore Stomp, Sunnyside of the Street and Olive gave out with Lock My Heart And Throw Away the Key.
Ray alternated horns and his embouchure seems to have moved slightly to starboard since his recent dental treatment - still sounds good.
The snow looked like returning so I once more prepared to weather the storm albeit still without the basic essential for raising the body temperature! Lance.
