Tenor saxophonist and flutist Bobby Jaspar was born 20 February 1926 in Liege, Belgium.

He learned the piano and to play the clarinet in his teens.

Then he played tenor saxophone with Toots Thielemans in Belgium.

In 1950, he moved to Paris, and becomes one of the center figures of Modern Jazz in Paris.

In 1951 he recorded with Henri Renaud and then played with touring Americans, including Jimmy Raney, Chet Baker.

In terms of private life he was briefly married to Blossom Dearie before moving to NYC.

Blossom Dearie moved to Paris in 1952.

She formed a vocal group, the Blue Stars and where she met Bobby Jaspar.

I would like to post on Blossom’s activities in Paris on another occasion.

In 1956 he settled in New York.

Bobby Jasparは1926年2月20日、ベルギーのリエージュという町で生まれました。



その後、テナーサックスも習得し、同じベルギー出身のToots Thielemansと共演していました。


1951年、Henri Renaud と初レコーデイングを行い、当時パリにツアーに来ていたJimmy Raneyや Chet Bakerとも演奏の機会を持ちました。

私生活においてBlossom Dearieと短期間ですが結婚していました。


1952年、Blossom Deareeはボーカルグループ「The Blue Stars」を結成し、パリで音楽活動を開始しました。その頃Bobby Jasparと出会ったそうです。


1956年、Bobby Jasparはニューヨークに活動の場所を求めました。

Jimmy Heath’s reputation as a jazz player has been partly overshadowed by his gifts as a composer and arranger.

In 1953 he began recording with Miles Davis, Clifford Brown and Kenny Dorham.

He made a now-legendary Blue Note Records date with Miles Davis and J.J. Johnson.


As an event worthy of special recording,they recorded Jimmy Heath’s compostition “C.T.A”.

In 1954, he was arrested and convicted for drug possession.

So he spent 4 1/2 years in prison,and he was released in 1959.

Unfortunately he could not play an active part in modern jazz history.

While in prison he composed many famous pieces.

He got them out to Chet Baker by passing them to his brother Tootie Heath.

Chet and Art Pepper made an album [Playboys] that included mostly his songs.
