Description:
"It has been a couple of decades since Dave Frishberg made a mostly piano album. A few years ago, the cornetist and author Richard Sudhalter wrote of his friend and collaborator: "David and his songs have amassed such a cult following that people often forget he«s one of the very best jazz pianists we have. I sometimes wonder whether even he has to be reminded once in a while.? Something reminded him. Four of the 14 pieces here have vocals; you can«t expect a guy with his singing habit to go cold turkey. Two of them are brand new Frishberg songs. But in this collection, he concentrates on the keyboard.? Ò Doug Ramsey, celebrated author and contributor to the leading jazz periodicals.
Here is what the critics have to say:
