Maine Street Jazzmen and Chips @ Rosie's!

Olive Rudd (vcl); Herbie Hudson (tmb/hca/vcl); Jim McBriarty (clt/alt/vcl); George Richardson (keys); Alan Rudd (bs); Mike Humble (dms).
It was almost back to normal today at Rosie's with Jim on reeds and George on keys - only absentee being Ray Harley. Nevertheless, even without a driving horn, the two frontliners more than cope.
"Whispering Jim McBriarty" delighted us with his crooning on Nobody's Sweetheart - in a previous lifetime he'd have been a matinee idol causing the ladies to reach for their smelling salts! In today's less temperate society who knows what they'd have reached for! Jim also spread the word on clarinet and alto.
Herbie, not as suave or as sophisticated as Jim, told it like it is both vocally, trombone-wise and with a mindblowing harmonica blast that somehow segued into Hey-Ba-Ba-Re-Bop. The good times rolled.
George Richardson injected a little sanity into the procedings with his ever tasteful - yet always swinging - solos.
Olive set the benchmark with I Thought About You - great song sung beautifully. The rhythm section as ever gelled and the afternoon was one of many delights.
Talking of those delights - alongside the traditional array of cheese, black pudding, pickled onions, crackers (biscuits), sausages bowls of chips were added. A culinary feast!
Lance.
