Bob Dorough & Dave Frishberg: Where You At?
Where You At?
Who's on First? (Blue Note 7243 5 23403 2 3)
Composed by David Frishberg.
Recorded: live at the Jazz Bakery, Los Angeles, November 5-7, 1999
Rating: 90/100 (learn more)
The sheer joyous pace of their two pianos frolicking on the intro is a treat for the ears, and when they start singing in unison you wish you had been in the audience for this concert recorded at the Jazz Bakery. But actually the voices of those two marvelous "natural" singers are not the main interest here, nor Frishberg's witty words to this song he penned. He and Dorough are remarkable piano players, too – in a tradition-to- bop-entertainer style – and each treats us with a solo full of drive and highly representative of his own personal style.
