Bebop Spoken There

Donald Harrison: "Eddie [Henderson] can play the hardest music effortlessly; things people are afraid of he plays like it's nothing."- (DownBeat, January 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.

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.

Pink Lane Jazz Co-op Update on Globe Project

I expect you will have heard about our project to buy The Globe and create a co-operative live music venue and jazz education hub.
We are holding an event for potential investors to find out more about this exciting venture on Monday 3 March at the Lit & Phil, 23 Westgate Road NE1 1SE starting at 6pm – there will be a buffet and bubbly as well as talk and jazz.  Whether you have invested or not please come along and bring some friends.  (It would be helpful if you let me know if you’re coming so we can get some idea of how many to cater for.)

To those of you who have already bought shares – thank you for supporting us.
To those of you who have not yet invested – please do so now.  There is no advantage in waiting because if you buy shares online the money does not get debited from your bank account until after the share issue is closed.  www.microgenius.org.uk/project/pink-lane-jazz-co-op-at-the-globe-17
You may also pay in instalments if you would prefer – please email me for details.
If you have invested already maybe you could persuade someone you know to invest as well.  There’s lots of good reasons to buy shares but two that have persuaded me are
1  This will be very significant for the future of jazz in Tyneside – providing a venue where musicians can learn, share and develop their skills.
2  We are asking for investments not donations.  It’s a good business opportunity that should earn a reasonable rate of interest.
I look forward to seeing you on 3 March.

Dave Parker
