|Hear Bob Dorough as never before – and all for the benefit of jazz lovers old and young.The new CD Bob Dorough Duets is exactly what its title implies – an album of all Bob Dorough compositions with Bob singing each song with a different artist. Mr. Dorough, who will turn 90 at the end of 2013, shows no signs of slowing down. His energy is apparent on every song.
On this recording he is paired with the New York Voices, Nellie McKay, JD Walter, Heather Masse, Janis Siegel, Grace Kelly and others, on some of his most iconic songs such as Devil May Care, I’m Hip, Comin’ Home Baby, and more. The recording also features Phil Woods and David Liebman on saxophones, Phil Markowitz on piano, and many other musicians from Bob’s ‘neighborhood.’
The CD is a fundraising project for COTA*, the Celebration of The Arts Jazz Festival(cotajazz.org) in the Delaware Water Gap, Pennsylvania – a local event for Mr. Dorough and his friends. The festival also sponsors a jazz camp (campjazz.org) and youth big band. These events are fostering young talent and keeping jazz alive!
