BOBBY KAPP picture
Jazz has been a way of life for Bobby Kapp. He began singing to his Grandmother's player piano, and, when he was three, surprised his father by standing up and singing in the buses they traveled in. In high school, he sang with the mixed chorus, and then began playing drums and singing jazz - and has been doing so ever since.

After studying percussion at the Berklee School of Music, he moved to New York and became active in the original avant garde "new music"of the sixties. Some records that he has appeared on have become classics of that period:

"Three For Shepp" with Marion Brown (Impulse) "Live at Judson Hall" with Noah Howard (ESP) "In Search of a Mystery" Gato Barbieri's first recording (ESP) "Dave Burrell High" with pianist Dave Burrell
