Bebop Spoken There

Clare Teal: "If you're brought up in a working-class family, you haven't got money for records so everything you get hold of, you treasure, learn to love, and I loved those Ella tapes." - (Radio Times 23-29 January 2021)

The Things They Say!

Hudson Music: Lance's "Bebop Spoken Here" is one of the heaviest and most influential jazz blogs in the UK.

Rupert Burley (Dynamic Agency): "BSH just goes from strength to strength".

The Kid From Biddick Hall


South Shields lad, Colin 'Kid' Dawson, jazz trumpet player, long time resident in Germany, has released his latest CD. An album that features a track Sandancer dedicated to his old home town. It is mentioned in tonight's Shields Gazette.
Listen to Swinga-Dilla-Street composed by James P. Johnson and played by the Kid's band - Echoes of  Swing - although I doubt if James P was referring to Ocean Rd!
