Bebop Spoken There

Maine St. Jazzmen @ Rosie Malone's.

John Cowan (cornet); Herbie Hudson (tmb/hca/vcl); Gavin Lee (clt); George Richardson (pno); Alan Rudd (bs); Mike Humble (dms); Olive Rudd (vcl).
Today's line-up was enlivened by the inclusion of John Cowan frae Dumfries on cornet who blew a solid lead and had some powerful solos.
Herbie, unlike last week I'm told, was fezless this week - you can take the man out of Turkey but you etc...
Herbie wailed on harp, growled on trom and exercised his larynx too on such as Dinah - missing the opportunity to subsitute "Miss Dinah Lee" with "Mr Gavin Lee". He also posed the questione as to why he should be so Black and Blue? - take the shirt of Herbie - half the problem solved!
Mr Gavin Lee continues on the glory trail - Shotton, Gateshead and now South Shields!
Hard Hearted Olive, Swung That Music and Shimmied Like Her Sister Kate before heading off down Bourbon Street.
One of the best sessions and a good crowd.
Lance.
