Bebop Spoken There

Abbie Finn: "Even though there's a lot of great work being done to promote women in jazz, I still come up against some attitudes! I pulled up at a recording session with my drums in the car and the studio owner said, 'I'm sorry, this space is reserved for the drummer!'" - (Jazzwise April 2023).

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.

Ann Braithwaite (Braithwaite & Katz Communications) You’re the BEST!

Holly Cooper, Mouthpiece Music: "Lance writes pull quotes like no one else!"

Identification required

Is there anyone out there who can identify this soprano sax player? The photo is probably circa early 1990s and may have been a publicity shot sent prior to a gig at Newcastle's Live Theatre although Dave Clarke, who seeks the information, thinks he probably wasn't from the local area. Lance

It looks like Trevor Watts (with his Moiré Music Drum Orchestra?).

I was going... Evan....But no it must be Trevor

(My Brother was a big TW FAN and had a girlfriend from Leeds at the time.... he always claimed that a shout to be heard on the live Triple Album was him)
