Bebop Spoken There

Ethan Iverson: "Oscar Peterson famously said that Bud [Powell] played just too many wrong notes. He was really critical of Bud as a player, which I think is not right." - (DownBeat March 2021)

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!
