Bebop Spoken There

Jim Keltner: “I was snatched right out of the jazz world. I shouldn't say snatched, I went willingly, I ran. From $85 a week to $250 a week, that gets your attention." - (JazzTimes, 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.

Quietest/skintest month in years. Apart from the kids (Francis Tulip Quartet) very kindly playing my at work colleagues' art exhibition launch in Seaham on the eighth, my only other gig was my first ever country and western gig, Lee Ann Womack - well I had to with a name like that - at the RNCM in Manchester. I'd have preferred a slide guitar and a fiddle to add to the two guitars/bouzouki, but she's a great singer and more where that came from is - sexist alert - the best Girls Night In album since Abba Gold.

Busiest month in a while for CDs with over 20 since payday (24th) but most of them will go to the back of the queue. Hoping to do a Soul Night in November concentrating on the ladies to exploit - sorry, pay tribute to Aretha, so I'm catching up on my ladies stuff.

It was actually the Tulip/ Metcalfe Quintet feat Alex Alex Thompson, just in case anybody might want to sue me.
