Dave Frishberg: Solo piano and vocals

"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.

—Doug Ramsey, celebrated author and contributor to the leading jazz periodicals.
