Bebop Spoken There

Brian Dee: "I feel my generation had one advantage over today's players in that we were not musically educated in colleges, so we all sounded different. I could tell who it was just by the sound." - (Jazz Rag, Summer 2020).

Maine Street Jazzmen @ Rosie Malone's, South Shields.

Olive Rudd (vcl); Jim McBriarty (alt/clt/vcl); Iain MacAullay (tmb/vcl); George Richardson (keys); Alan Rudd (bs); Mike Humble (dms).
Herbie has, once again, hibernated to Turkey calling in as a replacement Iain of the unspellable first and second names - hopefully I've got it right!
The dep was in good form sliding his way around Somebody Loves Me both vocally and instrumentally. This is one of Gershwin's great songs  although the line that goes, "To every girl that passes me I shout hey maybe, you would like to be my loving baby?" makes me wonder what was the percentage success rate and did he ever get arrested for soliciting?
Olive too took advantage of Herbie's absence and rendered cracking versions of The Frim Fram Sauce and Tuxedo Junction.
Possibly the best instrumental number was Mambo Inn that made for a pleasant change - keep it in the pad.
Another good afternoon aided and abetted by Marston's Pedigree.
Lance.
