Bebop Spoken There

Lew Shaw (Syncopated Times' columnist): "My interest [at 95] is in classic jazz. The numbers aren't what they were 40 years ago, but I'm encouraged by the number of young musicians playing that style and the young audiences they attract." - (The Syncopated Times 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".

Jazz at the Chronicle - 1962

I was doodling around or was it googling around looking for information on my cousin Dick Errington when I found this cutting from the Evening Chronicle of 26th. October 1962. It was just before I discovered jazz and shortly after that Dick, or Richard as the family called him, went on tour with Geraldo, I think. He came back later and joined the Screaming Lord Sutch Band and several others. There are other familiar names mentioned in the article including Brian Fisher and Joe Young who I knew.  
Who was E. D. Ward? 
Alfred Stone.

E D Ward was the "jazz-critic" pen name of late lamented Edward Scott Dobson of Larn Yersel Geordie fame! Ted semi-retired to the Maltese island of Gozo, but returned to Newcastle occasionally and I met him in Newcastle not long before he returned to Gozo for the last time. He died there on 22 January 1986 and is buried in the local cemetery. His headstone is inscribed "Gan Canny". A regular visitor to the Melbourne Street Jazz Club his sense of humour lit up many an evening!
