ABOUT THE BAND:
Dr. Bob's Jazz Boppin' Bebop Quartet - JBBQ - is ECLECTIC JAZZ set to music genres unlimited...from Bop to Pop to Latin to other music like Electronica - Hip Hop - Americana - Rock - Classical - and Miscellany.
JBBQ's unique Bebop Jazz sound comes from the song inside of everything - albeit animal,
vegetable, mineral, or far beyond. Hence the surreal and real counterpoint of the instruments - like distant reverb pianos - with right up front solid bass lines - combined with different and
alternating beats - the highest and lowest of notes - coupled with the essence of usually
disparate music genres blended as one or more euphonic jazz elements.
All of Dr. Bob's Jazz Boppin Bebop Quartet - JBBQ - songs are original - in more ways than
one - as described in the subsequent info on the nature of the band. Each JBBQ song is a story. JBBQ music is about our inner and outer lives - from happy to sad to the ridiculous and sublime as well as the stellar worlds. JBBQ music was created as "ear art" for the Mind, Body,
and Spirit of the listener and/or player. And was invented for instant music transport in.....
BOPPIN' BACK TO THE FUTURE.....................................
The short of the long story is, other than founder/front man Dr. Bob (and rare other individual attribution, e.g., Vesna Zafirovic of Costa Del Sol, Spain), almost all of the JBBQ "Guys" (from quartet, sextet and even orchestra at times) choose to remain anonymous for various personal and professional musician/music business reasons (ranging from contractual to family to other restrictive matters). And members of JBBQ live in scattered areas of the world from France to England to Serbia to Spain to Germany to United States to elsewhere.
Most of our music is for small ensemble, but when we go Classical or require orchestral
backing, we use other world class players/friends in various symphony orchestras.
Concerning the basic JBBQ core group for Jazz related songs and other eclectic music, we get together as possible a few times a year fro Paris to London to Belgrade to Timbuktu. But it's difficult to arrange such music sessions. So, we use Internet/Computers/Programs for most songs/or "collabs" as commonly used for making music long distance via the Internet.

We do not play live as "JBBQ". (However, many of the musicians associated with JBBQ play live either professionally or in special concerts/performances around the world. All of our JBBQ music is strictly for Internet Play and
free (or virtually free) song downloads - thanks to financial support from private/confidential
sponsors of JBBQ.)
ALL of the GREAT music and musicians of the past to the present and into the future. Thus,
our JBBQ music is Eclectic of any Genre/Subgenre...and influences everything musically
possible in our largely improvisational playing and resulting recordings.
You name it and we have probably used it at one time or another. Of course, all of the traditional musical instruments as well as many of the more non-traditional ranging from
ancient to modern including much of electronica. But the Computer and the Internet (as explained earlier in the info on "Band History") makes
JBBQ possible, as we know it.
AS ALL OF JBBQ MUSIC IS ALREADY COLLAB, WE DO NOT DO UNSOLICITATED SONG COLLABORATIONS. NATURALLY, AS WE FEEL THAT OUR "FINAL" VERSION OF A RECORDED
SONG IS COMPLETE, WE ALSO DO NOT PERMIT ANY OTHERS TO ADD THEIR MUSIC "TAKE" TO
JBBQ COPYRIGHTED MUSIC.
