Bobby Few

Primary Instrument: Piano

Born: October 21, 1935    

Jazz pianist Bobby Few was raised in a neighborhood in the Shaker Heights section of Cleveland, Ohio, along with the influential free jazz player Albert Ayler. Growing up, they listened to Lester Young and Charlie Parker together. Both started gigging while still in high school, and went on to record together as they moved further into the musical exploration and passion of free jazz. Few performs on Ayler's Music is the Healing Force of the Universe, and a few years later played with Archie Shepp. He has also performed with bassist Alan Silva, drummer Sunny Murray, Steve Lacy and Noah Howard, among others

”Sometimes lightning strikes twice. As proof, legendary expatriate Bobby Few has teamed with fellow sound explorer Avram Fefer for two fresh releases of very different character, and with near-perfect results.”
