TO ERIC SPIEGEL WITH LOVE FROM SKIP HELLER & BOB DOROUGH should be a disc, but some things are done for love, not money. The venerated singing pianist (83 years young) and the critically-lauded maverick jazz guitarist play a handful of tunes performed often by Spiegel and Heller, when the latter was making his bones under the former's watchful eye.

Spiegel, who was one of Philadelphia's great jazz talents, died last summer after years of failing health. Both as jazz pianist and vocalist, he loomed large on the Philly jazz landscape, but was under-recorded (no tapes seem to have surfaced of the Eric Spiegel Trio).

So Heller called Spiegel's hero, Bob Dorough, and they did this session. Go to the website below to access the podcast.
