Bebop Spoken There

KT Reeder: "The idea of teaching somebody to improvise is just bloody ridiculous. In this country jazz has been appropriated by universities. They have jazz courses, and they churn out people who have a degree in jazz, which makes me feel very nauseous, the idea that you can be trained to do jazz." - (Giant Steps by David Burke)

Archive quotes.

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.

Try Some Easy Living At The Globe

Get yourself along to the Globe on Thursday for easy living with the Indigo Jazz Voices!

 These fine singers will give you five or so songs each and I have advance notice that one of the songs will be Easy Living. The singers are Jenny Lingham, Carrie McCullock, Jen Errington, Paul Close and David Edgar, and they will be accompanied by the wonderful Alan Law on keys.

Other songs to be included are: I Only Have Eyes For You; Jeepers Creepers; Is You Is Or Is You Ain't My Baby? and I Could Have Danced All Night.

So do yourself a big musical favour and get along to the Globe Jazz Bar for 7.30pm Thursday  February 13. Only £5 admission on the door.
