Bebop Spoken There

Rickie Lee Jones: "There's lots of music and not so much celebrity. I guess I'll stay here [New Orleans] for a while if it doesn't get washed away in the flood." - (The Observer 18.04.21)

Happy Homecoming for Herbie Hudson Maine St. Jazzmen @ Rosie Malone's.

Joe Errington (tpt/vcl); Herbie "Turk" Hudson (tmb/hca/vcl) Gavin Lee (clt/alt); George Richardson (pno); Alan Rudd (bs); Mike Hunble (dms); Olive Rudd (vcl).
The sound of surprise was to the fore today at Rosie's with Turk Hudson back from his Guinness Book of Records attempt (longest holiday ever). Our man was in fine form on slide trombone, vocal and Hohner 270. However, the big surprise was seeing Joe Errington on trumpet. The ex River City horn man was over here on vacation and slotted in nicely with the MSJ Gavin Lee blew some really earthy clarinet and impressed - his alto playing hit the spot too. The rhythm section were on the money and Olive was in good voice on Swing That Music, When You're Smiling and Doctor Jazz. Our girl also displayed political correctness when she sang Some of These Days changing Big fat mama to little sweet mama - Olive sure ain't no big fat mama!
Lance.
PS: Jim McBriarty is in and out of hospital with tests looming. Best wishes to you Jim.
