Other Places: Frishberg In Portland

Dave Frishberg will be featured this weekend at one of the main concerts of the Portland Jazz Festival. It’s an unusual gig for Frishberg; he frequently plays piano in his adopted Frishberg.jpghometown but rarely sings his songs there. In Oregon Music News, Jack Berry opens his piece about Frishberg with a story of the time Frishberg got a startling surprise when he spotted an old friend. Here’s a link.

    The link Doug has provided to Dave Frishberg’s hour-long conversation at the Portland Jazz Festival is fascinating, a consolation prize for those of us who can’t be there today for this rare,sold-out gig. He’s eloquent and memorable in recounting experiences with a wide range of musicians and venues, and why he feels the way he does about the huge variety of people and happenings in his rich musical life. We Frishbergians keep hoping he will write more in his blog about his New York and Los Angeles years,why he especially admires certain players and singers and less admires certain others,and those looks inside a musician’s life on the bandstand and on the road..
