Dave Frishberg: By Himself

Artists / Instruments:
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 heīs 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 canīt 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.

Here is what the critics have to say:
Dave Frishberg: By Himself Selected by Benjamin Franklin V as Writerīs Choice for 1998 in the January/February 1999 issue of Coda; and selected as a 1998 Critics Picks in the March, 1999 issue of JazzTimes by Francis Davis
