Bebop Spoken There

Jim Keltner: “I was snatched right out of the jazz world. I shouldn't say snatched, I went willingly, I ran. From $85 a week to $250 a week, that gets your attention." - (JazzTimes, September 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.

Jazz North seeks bands to be touring ambassadors for Northern jazz scene

Jazz North is looking to recruit up to twelve bands to be ambassadors for the Northern jazz scene between January 2013 – March 2014 as part of northern line, a new model for supporting touring for northern jazz musicians across the north.
northern line artists will be able to access professional development training combined with new gigging employment opportunities. northern line artists will be available to Northern promoters on a sliding scale subsidy. This will enable promoters to choose from an exciting and diverse rostrum of artists with low financial risk. northern line will benefit from a full marketing package in National and northern media. northern line artists will be introduced to promoters across the North at three showcases during 2013.
Application Criteria
  • The majority of band members in any group must be living and working in the north of England (please see separate geographical description below)
  • We will prioritise musical excellence, in terms of musicianship, creativity and innovation, from artists committed developing their careers
  • We will prioritise artists who can engage an audience (or are willing to learn): e.g. those who show an awareness of stagecraft, the ability to connect with audience or talk about their music and craft
  • There is no age restriction or stylistic barriers. We expect the final portfolio to reflect the vibrant and diverse range of styles played by musicians across the North
  • This is no limit to the size of band, group or ensemble
  • Bands where all the musicians are in full time education will be ineligible. Bands where one or more musicians are still in full time education will be assessed on a case-by-case basis
  • Bands on the Jazz Services Touring Support Scheme between January 2013 – March 2014 will not be eligible. If there is a cross-over then a conversation will be required before being offered a place.
  • northern line artists will be invited to attend an induction day and all artists will have access to a series of professional development modules with industry professionals between January 2013 – March 2014. Modules to include the following areas: stagecraft, building relationships with promoters, diary organisation, marketing skills, travel practicalities, best practice on gigs, performing and workshops for children and young people.
Method of application and deadline
To apply, see www.jazznorth.org/projects/northern-line and complete the online application form.
Deadline for applications: 10:00 am Monday 17th December 2012
How we will choose the bands
