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.

'606' Club: "A toast to Lance Liddle of the terrific jazz blog 'Bebop Spoken Here'"

Preview: Pasadena Roof Orchestra at the Customs House tomorrow night (March 28)

Tomorrow night (March 28) at the Customs House, South Shields, sees the return of the Pasadena Roof Orchestra. These musical historians, like our own New Century Ragtime Orchestra, never fail to put on a great show. That the music is pre-1940 doesn't matter. Music is music, it's timeless and this band includes some of the best players in the idiom which is, of course, jazz but, also, entertainment.

Don't miss it, your only disappointment will be that space precludes you getting up to Charleston or shake your Black Bottom.

Last time I heard them was in 2016 - review.

I'll be there - vo-do-deo-do - that's all!
Lance
