THIS EXCEPTIONALLY GREAT DEAL FOR HIGH QUALITY RECORDED MUSIC HAS BEEN MADE POSSIBLE BY AN ANONYMOUS BENEFACTOR OF DR. BOB'S JAZZ BOPPIN' BEBOP QUARTET - JBBQ...AND A GRAND PATRON OF THE ARTS.........

SO PLEASE SPREAD THE GOOD NEWS!!! ***VIRTUALLY FREE JBBQ ECLECTIC SONGS FOR ALL FELLOW JAZZ/OTHER MUSIC LOVERS!!! ***

AND NOW MORE 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/or 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.....................................
Why this name?
We thought that such a long band moniker, of strange JAZZ/BEBOP/ECLECTIC nature, would either
catch attention - or at the least - our acronym "JBBQ" would be easier/easy to remember.
Do you play live?
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.)
How, do you think, does the internet (or mp3) change the music industry?
This question has become obsolete! The business of music has already become Internet based via electronic entertainment gadgets and programs. The old "music industry" is a thing of the past - with the present and future of music recording, production, etcetera unlimited in myriad new ways restricted only by the imagination!!!
Would you sign a record contract with a major label?
JBBQ has our own private Record Company, SILVER BAY RECORDS - but we have not chosen to market our music as long as our policy of free song downloads via the Internet remains possible due to outside sources of non-profit financial support.
Band History:
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
from Paris to London to Belgrade to Timbuktu. But it is difficult to arrange such music sessions. Thus, we mainly use Internet/Computers/Programs for collabortive songs or
"collabs" as commonly used for "making music long distance" via the Internet.

Your influences?
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.
Favorite spot?
J'aime Paris, without any question! But after that, I/We love wherever I/We may be - from London to
New York to Small Rural Villages to Mountains to Seashores to Deserts. After all, home is where the heart is - and the heart of JBBQ is music which is found anywhere in this looney tune planet called Earth. THANK GOD FOR MUSIC - THE ECSTASY OF OUR SOULS...
Equipment used:
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.
Anything else...?
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.

A story that lives behind so many closed doors, vividly described and brutally true. The music compliments the scene that the poem sets and the whole track reminds me a lot of those old black and white movies that told compelling tales of ordinary lives that had taken a wrong turn. Brilliant work.

Dig that cuica. The intro is a shocker that tells us this dance could be a wild one, and of course Dr. Bob delivers. Smart but fun, and you can't help but move to that beat.

Wonderful piece of music, the rhythm reminds of camels feet and things rattling on the saddle on a long hard trek across the desert. The subtle tinkling sounds gives an impression of sand blowing and hitting any metal or hard objects as they keep going to make it to the oasis before midnight. I can visualize the oasis in the distance and the feeling that they are nearly there. Superb atmospheric imagery!

Great tune with some very interesting instrumental work. As Steve, I also noticed the synced guitar/vibraphone work. It is clearly midi controlled, but still a very cool idea and adds the "strange" part. The whole piece is groovy and as always well produced and all instruments in their right place.
