Bebop Spoken There

Joe Farnsworth: "I have to say that jazz in New York will never die. It may seem like all the music happened 3,000 years ago, but, Charlie Parker, Billy Higgins, Max Roach and all the others are still here. You can feel their presence."- (DownBeat, January 2022)

The Things They Say!

Hudson Music: Lance's "Bebop Spoken Here" is one of the heaviest and most influential jazz blogs in the UK.

Rupert Burley (Dynamic Agency): "BSH just goes from strength to strength".

'606' Club: "A toast to Lance Liddle of the terrific jazz blog 'Bebop Spoken Here'"

The Strictly Smokin' Big Band included Be Bop Spoken Here (sic) in their 5 Favourite Jazz Blogs.
