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'"

But Beautiful Bill Evans

Another chance to hear…and for once no one can be anything other than delighted. All next week – Monday-Friday, Radio 3, 12 noon, repeated at 6:30pm – the subject of the long-running Composer of the Week programme is Bill Evans. In the week of the EFG London Jazz Festival this is a most welcome repeat.
Michael Berkeley’s guest on Private Passions, Radio 3, Sunday (12 noon) is, author and jazz fan, Geoff Dyer. Expect to hear some jazz. Midweek on Radio 4, Wednesday (that’s midweek), 9:00am, invites roundtable guests to talk about who knows what? As Soweto Kinch is a guest, there is every chance that the conversation will turn to jazz.

The SF JAZZ Collective reworks the music of Michael Jackson on Jazz Now at eleven o’clock on Monday evening, Radio 3.
The Sound of Soweto Radio 4, Tuesday (11:30am), tells the story not of Soweto Kinch,   rather the township of Soweto and its music, a music of defiance. Friday Night is Music Night (Friday, surprisingly) at eight o’clock is a second, quick repeat of the BBC Concert Orchestra’s performance first broadcast earlier this year with guests , vocalist Clare Teal and Lance Ellington. And don’t forget to catch the BBC Jazz pop-up station currently on air as the 2016 EFG London Jazz Festival gets into full swing. Tune to DAB radio or you can listen online.        
Russell.
PS: And don't forget to tune-in to RTHK tomorrow (Sunday) for Colin Aitchison's Vintage Chart Toppers.
