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.

Pete Gilligan's Jam Session @ Hoochie Coochie. Thursday Sept. 6.

Pete Gilligan (pno); Steve Glendinning (gtr); Paul Susans(bs); ? (dms). + Lindsay Hannon (vcl); Gabriele Heller (vcl); Steve ? (ten).

I had hoped to go to Blaydon last night with my mate Alan. Unfortunately Alan's prestigious gig at Bothal Castle with Ellington Colliery Band overran. He very kindly gave me a lift to Hoochie later in the night - just in time to hear the end of the first set from the quartet. The second set saw saxophonist Steve (a newcomer to me) join the band. A very polished performance. Several nice numbers from Gabriele followed by Lindsay to end the night, the band playing on until 11 oclock. I had to run up Northumberland Street and just managed to catch the 23:05 last bus to Ashington 
Plenty of variety of styles and overall a highly entertaining night. If this is a regular jam session please give us more Warren! 
A lovely lady with a top notch camera took lots of pics. I gave her Lance's email address - hope we can see her work some time.
Numbers were down at Hoochie last night, I know that some folks would be at Blaydon but numbers seem to be down everywhere at the moment - we only had 30 at Ashington on Wednesday.
