Some Robert Wyatt and Hugh Hopper links

Robert Wyatt e Christine Hopper
Originally uploaded by Prospettive Musicali

- Some time ago I read in the Swedish newspaper "Svenska Dagbladet" that they claimed that Richard Youngs makes music that starts where Robert Wyatt's "Rock Bottom" ends! Anybody out there who can understand that?
- Citizen Jazz on Orchestre National De Jazz's ”Around Robert Wyatt” concert and the book "Anthologie du projet MW". All of it in French.
- Visit YouTube for Carl Didurs' "Elegy for Hugh Hopper".

Thank's to Fabio for the picture.

!. Apologies for my ignorance, but is Christine Hopper Hugh's widow or his daughter?

2. I have nothing against Richard Youngs, but I'd say that's overreaching a bit.

Thanks again for your fine blog.
