We're really very modest but...

...I didn't think I should let this go by without bringing it to your attention. http://blog.uk.cision.com/2010/02/top-five-uk-jazz-blogs/ Lance and Co.

Modesty is not required in these circumstances!

I'd not come across Cision before - apparently it's a "a global media intelligence provider". I've decided I'll start keeping an eye on their blog as it seems to have quite a lot to say about the music industry.

Well I've lost count how many times I've said to Mr Lance Liddle just how much I think his style and memory and delivery entertains the global media intelligent jazz users. I can spot a Liddle script many beats before I start reading. It always begins with the title and I just know a surprise connection will follow. It's not reportage but more creative odes to music itself and their wonderful creators. I love good writing with the capacity to evoke the gig experience in your mind. There is also a sense of a continuing storyline regarding local musicians, so we kind of 'grow' and move with the music and peoples' careers over time. It's a lovely small touch. This list simply does not surprise me in the least. He also happens to be a remarkably friendly and thoroughly sincere human being, I am blessed to have received his warmth. Sarah

About this blog - contact details.

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 (Who 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.)
Contact: lanceliddle@gmail.com I look forward to hearing from you.
