Editorial Reviews

Product Description

On her eighth CD release, Little Did I Dream, vocalist Connie Evingson performs the songs of jazz great Dave Frishberg. With her usual flair for delving deep into a songbook, Evingson vividly inhabits all of the humor, hipster smarts and tender romanticism that earned Frishberg the title ASCAP Jazz Living Legend in June 2007. The 14 tracks on Little Did I Dream showcase Frishberg's breadth as a composer and Evingson's spot-on interpretive skills, from the beatnik cool Peel Me a Grape, to the swinging Zoot Walks In, to the wistful ballad You are There. Not only does Little Did I Dream possess Frishberg's imprimatur, the legendary jazz man plays piano on every track.

Review

Following a couple of steamy forays into Django-esque gypsy jazz, Minneapolis-based vocal treasure Connie Evingson turns to the smart, sophisticated, witty, and frisky songs of St. Paul native Dave Frishberg on her terrific eighth album, Little Did I Dream (Minnehaha Music). Actually, the project is a dream fulfilled, because Evingson lured Frishberg back to his hometown to play jaunty piano on every track, hang with his old pal Dave Karr (who chimes in on sax and flute), and share vocals on the very Minnesotan tune Snowbound. Frishberg's lengthy career in New York and L.A. included piano-playing stints with the likes of Ben Webster and Carmen McRae, while his songs have been covered by dozens of premier singers, from Rosemary Clooney to Tony Bennett to Diana Krall. As has come to be expected from Evingson, she wraps herself in Frishberg's songs, using her sly, sinuous phrasing and wondrous tone to make them bloom, whether it's a wistful ballad like Heart's Desire, a breezy trip to Zanzibar, a swinging goof like Can't Take You Nowhere, or the hipster-ish sizzle of Peel Me a Grape. --Rick Mason, City Pages
