Singer, pianist and songwriter Bob Dorough (pictured), known for being one of the few vocalists ever to record with Miles Davis as well as for his compositions for the ABC-TV children's program Schoolhouse Rock, is returning to St. Louis to perform at 7:00 p.m. and 9:15 p.m. Sunday, January 15 at the Bistro at Grand Center, 3536 Washington Boulevard.
The show is billed as a tribute
to Fran Landesman, the late poet, songwriter and former St. Louisan who, with her husband Jay, owned the Crystal Palace nightclub in Gaslight Square. Although it is taking place in the same space used by Jazz St. Louis for Jazz at the Bistro, Dorough's show is an independent production renting the room for the evening; tickets, priced at $35 each and on sale now, are available in advance only by calling 314-968-1898.
