Maine Street Jazzmen @ Rosie Malones

Olive Rudd (vcl); Iain MacAulay (tmb/vcl); Jim McBriarty (clt/alt/vcl); George Richardson (pno); Alan Rudd (bs); Mike Humble (dms).
With Herbie still away talking Turkey Iain MacAulay again provided the trombonology as well as a vocal or two - Sweet Georgia Brown being one of them. Young McBriarty also crooned a few tunes as well as playing clarinet and alto - Tin Roof Blues  being one of them. Nice vocal (inc. verse) and mellifluous alto - Rabbit Lives is no doubt been scrawled all over South Shields (Rabbit = Johnny Hodges). 
However, today' top accolade went to Olive for her rendition of I Wished On The Moon - thank you Olive.
The word down on the waterfront is that the Maine Street Jazzmen are returning to the Porthole, North Shields as of Monday October 17 for a regular lunchtime set.
