Bebop Spoken There

George "Big Nick" Nicholas: "This band [George Adams-Don Pullen Quartet] is a bitch on roller skates, baby. They'll run you over if you ain't ready" (JazzTimes April, 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.

Happy New Year Lance & keep up the good work. My favourite gig of 2013 was Gwilym Simcock at Zefferelli's in Ambleside in August. Fantastic music from a top man in an intimate, friendly venue.
