Hamlet without the Prince of Denmark is stiil a good Play. The MAINE STREET JAZZMEN @ Rosie's.

Olive Rudd (vcl), Herbie Hudson (tmb/vcl/hca), Jim McBriarty (clt/vcl), Malcolm Armstrong (pno), Alan Rudd (bs), Mike Humble (dms).
I always give a downhearted sigh when I note Ray Harley isn't on the stand however, Herbie and Jim are more than capable of moving into the lead spot and, after a few numbers, the ambience is there.
Vocals were to the fore today with Jim excelling (again) on Gonna Get A Girl, Varsity Drag and Nobody's Sweetheart Now.
Herbie too sang at every opportunity as well as blowing slide trombone like Ory and muted like Tricky Sam. His harmonica playing also helped to fill the trumpet void.
Olive opened up with Fine and Dandy (Beano and Dandy said someone who may have been sitting at the keyboard) and reprised her splendid version of Home. When Your Smiling and Lock Away Your Heart were also done in her inimitable and crowd pleasing fashion.
Another good Thursday afternoon.
Lance.
