Fritz Schulz-Reichel

p, 1912-1990 DE, Meiningen
Musician / Composer / Conductor of Jazz and Pop
A.k.a. Crazy Otto Der Schräge Otto

Fritz Schulz-Reichel (July 4, 1912 - February 4, 1990) was a German jazz and pop pianist.Schulz-Reichel's father was a classical musician, and he began playing piano at the age of six. He developed an unusual technique where he played the melody of a tune with the left hand and the rhythm with the right hand.In 1955, American musician Johnny Maddox played a medley of his songs, entitled "The Crazy Otto Medley"; this went to #2 on the U.S. charts, and in the U.S. both Reichel and Maddox were subsequently known as "Crazy Otto", to some confusion.
