Bobby's birthday today. In a recent email he said "Will be 87 in July…UGH!"

Just recently started to explore his music. What a great musician. A true original!

I figure someone here may wish to see this - it's an interview conducted as part of the ongoing Purple Gums project (an improvising trio featuring Bobby, William Roper, and Francis Wong). Happy (belated) birthday, of course, to the man.

Absolutely! There was an interval when Purple Gums was a more or less regular sight up in the Bay. The trio itself was/is really strong, but their concerts provided an opportunity to spend time with Bobby. I haven't encountered many musicians of his stature who can make an audience Q&A sound and feel so conversational and intimate.
