In Tribute to Bob Dorough
This Saturday, April 25th at 9pm, WVIA will be airing a special encore presentation of Homegrown Music Concerts featuring jazz legend Bob Dorough who passed away this Monday at his home in Mt. Bethel, PA at the age of 94.
The episode was recorded February 17th, 1998. Here is the original episode description:
A jazz legend, composer of many jazz standards like "Devil May Care," the only jazz vocalist ever to be invited to appear on a Miles Davis album, the creative force behind "Schoolhouse Rock" on TV, and a great swinging pianist, Bob Dorough is one of the major jazz figures to call the Poconos region home. He appears in a great collection of mostly original songs, marked by his one-of-a-kind witty, hip style.
