Mentioned in Despatches

"Hats off to Lance Liddle's Bebop Spoken Here blog which produced eleven lively pieces during last weekend's Gateshead Festival" - Sebastian Scotney, LondonJazzNewsletter.
(Editor - Actually it was 18 and counting unless seven of them weren't considered "Lively"!).

Lance I know, I know, your total was a moving target, and at the time when I wrote that bit of the newsletter there were, Scout's Honour, only eleven pieces there.

I will put in an amendment next week - but the number will probably have risen again (?). I haven't read them all, but I did think Ann Alex's piece was just great! But all in all fantastic work and I'm sure Ros R and Gaynor will be thanking you for such incredible support !

Lance said...

I appreciate that but an amendment isn't necessary. As you say it is a moving target and there are probably another two reviews out there.
Are you coming up to Newcastle next weekend?

The LondonJazz site said...

No Manchester Friday 12, Oxford Sunday 14, Leeds Monday 15, thereafter just London - oh and Bremen!

Debra said...

How much coverage did GIJF get in the national press? I don't think The Guardian reviewed any of it....
