Maine Street Jazzmen @ Rosie Malone's

Olive Rudd (vcl); Herbie Hudson (tmb/hca/vcl); Jim McBriarty (alt/clt/vcl); George Richardson (pno); Alan Rudd (bs); Mike Humble (dms).
Christmas spirit was in the air as Herbie sent his vocal letter to Santa  - I Want A Little Girl (or a big one!). Herbie had foresaken his trusty Bb/F trombone for the standard Bb model (with copper bell) - he still blew well although on one number, I've forgotten which, he couldn't quite reach the bass note wanted to finish on.
Olive was in good voice particularly on I Wish I could Shimmy Like My Sister Kate and, to the delight of one of the more extrovert regulars, Back in your Own Backyard.
Jim sang Avalon as well as blowing some excellent Goodmanesque clarinet. Mike Humble does amazing things on his minimalist kit whilst George Richardson ensures the Shearing sound lives on. Alan ensures the ship isn't "Rudderless".
Christmas cards were distributed and raffles were won by others.
Next week Mike Humble and family will be playing carols during the intermission as well as blowing some jazz.
Lance.

Very perceptive of you Liz! However, before we run to speculative suggestions that I can see into the future the simple answer is that, because I was on a tight schedule 'twixt Rosie's and Hoochie I'd set up the personnel details at the aforementioned 12:10 then added the actual review later - honest guv!
