ReSteamed was formed in 2006 and is dedicated to the recordings of Stan Tracey exclusively, listing his past, present and future releases.
Originally, Steam Records, owned by Stan and Jackie Tracey, recorded important groups led by Stan in the Seventies and Eighties but they were only ever issued on vinyl.
ReSteamed will be making all of these sessions available again on CD, along with previously unissued sessions going back to the Sixties, as well as Stan's latest recordings.

Bebop Spoken here is a blog that will interest most jazz followers. http://www.lance-
Run by Lance Liddle in the North East he describes it below:
Bebop Spoken Here -- Here, being the north-east of England -- centred in the blues heartland of Newcastle and reaching down to the Tees Delta and looking upwards to the Land of the Kilt. Not a very original title, I know; not even an accurate one as my taste, whilst centred around the music of Bird and Diz, extends in many directions and I listen to everything from King Oliver to Chick Corea and beyond. Not forgetting the Great American Songbook the contents of which has provided the inspiration for much great jazz and quality popular singing for round about a century. The idea of this blog is for you to share your thoughts and pass on your comments on discs, gigs, jazz - music in general. If you've been to a gig/concert or heard a CD that knocked you sideways please share your views with us. Tell us about your favourites, your memories, your dislikes. Lance wishes it to be known that he is not responsible for postings other than his own and that he's not always responsible for them.
