Babs GonzalesBabs Gonzales (Lee Brown, October 27, 1919 – January 23, 1980) was an American jazz vocalist and band leader of the late 40's Be Bop era and later was known as an effusive beat poet. He may be most notable for penning the song "Oop-Pop-A-Da", which was made famous by Dizzy Gillespie, but originally recorded and performed by his own band, three bips and a bop, a scat vocalese group that later was briefly expanded for some sessions as Six Bips and a Bop in December of 1948. Babs was also a road manager in the early 50's for the James Moody band and was also once the chauffeur for Errol Flynn.
