Bobby Jaspar

Yesterday evening I started to read the Robert "Bobby"Jaspar bio by Jean Pol Schroeder. It was published in 1997 by Mardaga. Never saw much attention in the press here about the book, anyway I'll try to keep you up to date with it.

Just read the very beginning, in which is explained that his family is very much connected to Liège. Most of his ancestors were or artistically involved or technical innovators...

1926 was a very good year, at least for Jazz :

20.02 : birth of Robert "Bobby" Jaspar

25.05 : birth of Miles Dewey Davis III

23.09 : birth of John William Coltrane

Will pass onto his youth in pre WWII Liège…
