Bebop Spoken There

Charlie Musselwhite: "I used to see these posters in the windows of the [Chicago] blues clubs advertising Elmore James and Muddy Waters which knocked me out. I was making a note of the addresses and at night I'd go back and listen to the blues until 4-5 in the morning." - (Blues Matters! Aug/Sep 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.

Down Beat Critics Poll Winners 2012.

The results are out now. View them here. Most interesting is Wycliffe Gordon picking up the Trombone Award. Gordon is perhaps the most mainstream orientated of the winners and a frequent collaborator with my two favourite American singers - Becky Kilgore and Daryl Sherman.
Daryl of course is due at, among other venues nationwide, The Sage, Gateshead on July 16 - 3 weeks from today. If you haven't yet got your ticket don't delay - she really is a class act.
Lance.
