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.

Maine Street Jazzmen @ Rosie Malone's

Olive Rudd (vcls); Ray Harley (tpt); Jim McBriarty (clt/alt/vcl); Iain MacAulay (tmb); George Richardson (pno); Alan Rudd (bs); Mike Humble (dms).
Another afternoon at 'Eddie Condon's' - okay I exagerate and there ain't no guitar. There rarely was at Condons either! What I'm saying is that you'll never find another bar in South Shields that replicates the Condon brand of Dixie so authentically.
Ray Harley was back on trumpet and it has to be said he makes every note count in his solos. Likewise Jimmy Mack who, not only announced, sang, played clarinet and alto but, also smiled (he may deny it!). Iain was high in the smiles dept and he blew some nice trombone. George Richardson played a lovely intro that was perhaps worthy of more than Big Butter and Egg Man. Alan Rudd and Mike Humble did the biz whilst Olive exercised her vocal chords beautifully on the old Bix/Trumbaeur number Singin' The Blues. Olive was in a swinging mood imploring the band to Swing That Music which they dutifully did!
Lance.
PS: Mike Humble tells me his own band Sax Cymbals are at Rosie's on Saturday June 4. 60's pop and funk with keys, sax, gtr, bs, dms..
