Bob Dorough & David Frishberg

Bob Dorough & David Frishberg

Dave Frishberg, the 2011 Portland Jazz Master, has enjoyed a career remarkable for both its quality and diversity. Having worked with such greats as Ben Webster, Zoot Sims, Manhattan Transfer and Rebecca Kilgore, Frishberg has established himself as an internationally recognized composer and lyricist as well as a solo performer with a loyal following. Frishberg who rarely struts his vocal vocabulary will oblige in duo with acclaimed pianist and vocalist Bob Dorough.  The 90 year old School House Rocker known for his work with Miles Davis and beat poet Allen Ginsberg are set to recast the 1999 Blue Note Records classic, Who’s On First as part of the Blue Note @ 75 celebration.  Dorough, a longtime resident of the Delaware Water Gap region, recorded three albums for the storied imprint and 22 recordings overall dating back to his 1956 debut, Devil May Care.
