Not sure what to say?

Stomp Off records have given me many hours of enjoyment, my condolences to the family.

Dear Erda,

I am so sorry to hear of Bob's passing. He was a good friend to me and especially to the Red Rose Ragtime Jazz Band -- he recorded us early in our career in the 80's and was instrumental in getting us our first jazz festival gigs.
Without him and Stomp Off, trad jazz would not have sustained its popularity, and I don't believe we would have so many youngsters performing it today such as Tuba Skinny, the Shotgun Jazz Band and others.

My sincere...

Dear Erda and family,
Bob was a remarkable man in every repect. He was a champion on behalf of classic jazz, and there are so many musicians worldwide who were able to express themselves thanks to Bob's Stomp-Off label. Bob and Erda came to Europe many times to visit jazz festivals, and it was a joy to play in front of him, and participate in friendly musical discussions. He was always open to suggestions for Stomp-Off, and had many ideas himself. Unknowingly, he founded a worldwide...

Bob has done so much for traditional jazz. There are few equals that match his interest and output and unselfish approach. I am convinced that his dream to spread traditional jazz worldwide will continue. He will be sorely missed but always remembered. Having been part of the Black Eagles and the leader of the New Jazz Wizards I express my sincere gratitude.
My heartfelt condolences to you Erda.

I am very sad to hear of Bob's passing. I illustrated a number of Stomp Off covers over the years, and it was always a great pleasure to work with Bob and to share his love and passion for the music. It was truly a great honor to know him and to work with him.

Will miss you Bob.

Dear Erda,
I just learned the very sad news of Bob's passing. Please know I'm thinking of you and your family. Bob's wonderful life and his contributions to the community are to be treasured, and I'm so glad that he was a part of my life. I will always remember him with great fondness. May Bob's memory be a blessing and may he rest in peace.

Sending my condolences...Mr. Erdos had great stories, a passion for the arts and just an all-around nice guy. The world needs more like him!
