Bebop Spoken There

Jack Teagarden: "I never did like anything Ellington ever did. He never had a band all in tune, always had a bad tone quality and bad blend" - Metronome, April 1947.

From the Jazz Band Ball to the Mambo Inn at Rosie's Thursday May 12.

Olive Rudd (vcl); Bill Watson (tpt); Iain MacAulay (tmb/vcl); Jim McBriarty (clt/alt/vcl); George Richardson (pno); Alan Rudd (bs); Mike Humble (dms).
More deps this week - it keeps the band and the audience on their toes wondering!
Iain MacAulay was bound over from last week on suspicion of playing a Roswell Rudd lick! However it was case dismissed when Iain proved he had better licks of his own. Iain also sang a few.
On trumpet this week was big band man Bill Watson who proved himself equally adept in a small group setting. Indeed he threw a few bop licks into his solos which gave a new look to Muscrat Ramble!
The band opened with At The Jazz Band Ball and finished with At The Mambo Inn hence the heading. McBriarty the younger played alto and clarinet as well as chanting a few in his inimitable style. However, when it comes to handing out the vocal kudos Olive's version of I Thought About You got the nod - I wonder if there will be anything of that quality song or singer on tonight's Eurovision Song Contest?
I know the answer! It's a two letter word beginning with N and ending with O!
Lance. PS: This post differs from the original due to the Bloggerami that occurred earlier this week and I had to be re-creative from memory!
