Bebop Spoken There

Ferg Ireland: “I was very ignorant about early jazz - it's bizarrely skirted over in jazz education." - (Jazzwise, 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.

Blaydon International Jazz Club...

Our Man in Hong Kong, Colin, makes his annual pilgrimage to Tyneside next month where he will be heard with fellow Hong Kong bandmate Franco Vasulli (ten/clt) and Cumbria based Steve Andrews at Blaydon Jazz Club on July 5. Later in the week more of Ned Kelly's migrant musicians will be arriving and a session with the Vieux Carré Jazzmen is on the cards for July 9 at the Millstone (1pm) assuming the refurbishments are completed by then! 
No doubt the boys will pop up at other sessions too!
In the above photo Colin (far left) can be seen with Phil Whelan (RTHK Radio 3 Presenter), American trombone star, Dan Barrett & Flugel Horn player from Switzerland Hansueli Krähenbühl.

Colin will be leading the Cullercoats Crescent Club Jazzmen ( Brian Chester, Derek Fleck, Ollie Rillands and me - i.e. The usual Monday crew) at the Mouth of the Tyne Festival on Sunday 12 July, 12-1245 and 3-345.
The councils thought police wouldn't accept The China Boys and it isn't Broadway Melody so we had to find another name !
Colin and Franco will be at the CCC on Monday 6th preceding.
