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.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
