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.

An Ilkley Moor Pork Pie Hat

Jazz in Yorkshire has gone to be replaced by a number of related sites such as NorVol Jazz - described as "The Best Place For Promoting Yourself in the North (sic).". Northern Jazz Live -  "Norvol Jazz's new blog." and Jazz North who are "Building a new jazz delivery model based on collective partnerships".
So, you pays your money and you takes your choice - things are simpler north of the Tees!
Our favourite is NorVol Jazz which networks and acknowledges Bebop Spoken Here posts - Thank you Steve Crocker.
Lance.
PS: And yes, there is also Jazz in York which John Marley drew my attention to last year.
