 Greg Poppleton sings 14 snappy tracks of 1920s hotcha & 1930s swing on his exciting debut Swing CD, The Phantom Dancer


 

"Fresh, original, filled with musical integrity...And boy do these guys swing!"

JAZZREVIEW.COM (US) May 2007 Featured Artist


  "His fascination for Swing began at age three..."

SYDNEY MORNING HERALD Feature Article 


 "Yes, some people were born out of time. The delightful Greg Poppleton is one of them..."

 CITY NEWS CD REVIEW, May 2007


 "I use it in class,"

Claudia Funder, Co-Director, SWING PATROL DANCE SCHOOL 


 Greg Poppleton's voice sounds straight out of a 1920s & 30s dance band. And Greg's Bakelite Dance Band has been likened in style to the famous John Kirby Sextet of the late 1930s. Check out the style on It's Only a Paper Moon .


 "By..'On the Sunny Side of the Street' (1930), you realize that the Bakelite Dance Band is a critical force to be reckoned with. Everyone approaches this bash with ease and frolic where solos abound. Furniss whips out his clarinet and begins to chase Henderson around the studio. Poppleton knows this song like he knows his name. Vogt & Davis swing like a playground and Locke hops in and out of a Double Dutch! Just TRY not to sway to the music. I dare you!"

JazzReview.com 


 And about Greg Poppleton's version of Night & Day, JazzReview.com wrote, "[Paul] Furniss is my new favorite altoist. Peter Locke’s [piano] beautiful approach to this cut actually made me stop writing to ‘google’ him. I will be following his career from now on! Feel the energy!"

Thank you for buying our songs of 1926 - 1939 & supporting Aussie Swing.

We look forward to your next visit, All the best, Greg Poppleton & his Bakelite Dance Band.
