Bebop Spoken There

Anat Cohen: "With the tenor, it's so iconic with jazz. With the clarinet, I can improvise, but it doesn't have to be called jazz." - (DownBeat July 2019)

RIP Fritz Pauer

I must here confess I was unfamiliar with the work of Austrian jazz pianist Fritz Pauer who died on July 1 but when no less a person than singer Sheila Jordan paid the following tribute on Facebook I knew he must be something else and he was.
"I sure am in shock over Fritz Pauer's passing. What a great guy he was and what a fantastic musician. He was so caring and such a wonderful human being to be around. He made my stay in Graz less lonely for New York. I will miss you my friend. We were going to have a gig sometime next year for Axelle at Jazzland. We will have to move it to the heavens sometime in the future my friend". Sheila.
Listen to him here duetting with altoist Sheila Cooper.
Fritz Pauer was 69.
Obituary.
