Dave Frishberg. Urbane, pianist extraordinaire, a real lyricist, and a musician who gets us other musical cats. Here is “I Want To Be A Sideman”. At NYFOS, we bring in sidemen all the time. Clarinetists, guitarists, percussionists, whatever the music calls for. And playing the piano for singers—well, sometimes you ARE the sideman. If you have a great singer, it’s a good life! Lots of great songs by Dave Frishberg. Check out “My Attorney Bernie”. Breezy NYC music for the summer!
