Maine Street Jazzmen @ Rosie's.

Herbie Hudson (tmb/vcl/hca); Steve Andrews (clt); George Richardson (pno); Alan Rudd (bs); Mike Humble (dms); Olive Rudd (vcl).
The Maine Street gang have a simple solution when they need a clarinet player - The Twentieth Century Ragtime Orchestra! Jimmy McBriarty, Gavin Lee and, this week, Steve Andrews.
Steve was in fine form and, although I missed his tenor playing the work on gobbo made up for it. I can't recall hearing a better clarinet solo on Hindustan!
Olive sang All of Me, I'm Crazy 'Bout My Baby, Fine and Dandy and a show-stopping Sister Kate. Strikes me that, in the absence of Ray Harley, Olive should be featured more often. She fills the gap perfectly.
George Richardson, as always, excelled his solos moving the band a little further up the timescale.
Rhythm on top of things it was another swinging afternoon.
Lance.
