Bebop Spoken There

Dick Katz: "Carmen [McRae] would say some pretty caustic things but, so what? There aren't any people who don't talk caustically to each other at some time unless they're Mother Teresa." - (Lesley Gourse: Carmen McRae Miss Jazz - Billboard Books 2001, 2020)

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".

Classic Swing @ Ashington Jazz Club.


Bob Wade (trumpet/flugel/clarinet); Jim McBriarty (sax/clarinet); Malcolm Armstrong (piano); Alan Rudd (bass); Ian Hetherington (drums); Olive Rudd (vocal).

(Proxy review by Lance)
John Taylor, the Norman Granz of Ashington, tells me that Bob Wade's Classic Swing played some classic swing on their first visit to The Elephant - HQ of AJC.
He sent me the set list to prove it and backed it up with a Facebook video. Ian Hetherington was a late dep on drums and, I'm told, brought the house down.
Classic Swing can also be heard Monday lunchtimes at the Marquis of Granby, Sunniside.
