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.

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.

RIP Ian Whitcomb.

I've just received a link to the latest edition of The Syncopated Times which includes an obituary of Ian Whitcomb, a pop star of the 1960s who later played ragtime. I'll be honest and admit I know very little about him although, some years ago, I did read a book that he'd written - After The Ball.

So, rather than muddle through I'll link you directly to The Syncopated Times which includes several other obituaries including San Francisco trombonist Bob Meilke.
Ian Whitcomb died on April 19 aged 78.
Bob Meikle died on April 17 aged 94.
Lance
