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.

Jessica Needs Help.

Apologies if you've already covered this but if not, your readers might want to know that Jessica Williams, who gave some memorable recitals in Darlington and Gateshead a few years ago, is no longer able to play her piano following spine surgery in July.
She's even had to sell her piano to pay for current living expenses (although the cost of the operation itself was covered).
Full details are on her website but she will be unable to play for at least a year.
She's asking for donations or for people to buy some of her CDs to help out
Also, Leo Records are having an "end of the world sale" (Before we all perish on 21.12.2012) with their entire catalogue available at £2 a CD (minimum order 10). Lots of your readers could well be interested, n'est ce pas?
Keep up the good work.
Peter Bevan.
