Maine Street Jazzmen @ Rosie Malone's and a surprise.


Olive Rudd (vcl); Herbie Hudson (tmb/hca/vcl); Jim McBriarty (alt/clt/vcl); George Richardson (pno); Alan Rudd (bs); Mike Humble (dms).
Well jazz is the sound of surprise and no one was more surprised than me when the Maine Street Jazzmen unleashed their version of Mobile - a long time favourite of mine since I first heard Ray Burns (not the harmonica bluesman!) sing it back in 1955 when it charted at number 4.
The swinging big band accompaniment on the disc (78rpm) was by Eric Jupp and his Orchestra and, if I remember correctly, it may have included a very young Tubby Hayes in the sax section. A great number well worthy of revival and even if Herbie didn't quite get the lyric as per the disc it was still the highlight of today's session.
Earlier, Olive had sang, rather inappropriately, Blue Skies - a colour they certainly weren't - Keepin' Out of Mischief Now, I Double Dare You and later My Blue Heaven.
Jimmy Mack sang If I Could Be With You and it was an all round good afternoon but oh that song - the memories (not to be repeated here!).
Lance.

And here's me thinking it was a song about a mobile phone! I love this sort of song where you learn something about America, teachers should play songs like this instead of trying to teach geography. Ann Alex
