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.

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.

Wylam Songbook Course Fully Booked

Earlier this year Ron Guariento informed me of his proposed  Course on the Great American Songbook (The Gasbook as we affectionately call it) and appealed for interested parties to get in touch.
Well I'm pleased to say that many parties were interested and  the course, which starts on Oct.16 for 5 weeks, is now fully subscribed.
However, if you've procrastinated and missed out, Ron is hoping to run another one next year looking at songwriters and lyricists other than the "Big Five".
Watch this space.
As an afterthought, we've got this course at Wylam, Jazz sessions at Blaydon and Hexham and Sunniside so maybe those 'hicks out in the sticks ain't hicks at all!'
Lance (of Hebburn).
