We miss Bobby…But his spirit in the music is forever.

We put this record out together a few years ago and simply loved the man and his music.

Other kind words by better writers.

“The oldest continuously running jazz club in America isn’t in New York, Chicago or New Orleans but in the Delaware Water Gap of Pennsylvania, where for nearly seven decades the Deer Head Inn has hosted everyone from Stan Getz to Keith Jarrett. If the Deer Head can claim a resident headliner, it is surely Bob Dorough, who, nearing 94, still makes regular appearances. This particular set, featuring trio-mates Steve Berger (guitar) and Pat O’Leary (bass), plus two special guests, was captured on Dec. 12, 2015, Dorough’s 92nd birthday.” – Jazz Times (APRIL 25, 2019)

And from the web.

“Bob is at his most laid back on “Live at the Deer Head Inn,” playing before a packed house of family and friends with the added bonus of his daughter, flautist Aralee Dorough, sitting in with Daddy-O, Steve Berger (sublime on guitar) and Pat O’Leary (ditto on bass) on several numbers.  The album is beautifully produced by Bill Goodwin and exquisitely recorded, mixed and mastered by Ken Heckman of Red Rocks Studios, with superb liner notes by jazz scholar Pat Dorian.

Ray Noble’s “The Touch of Your Lips” kicks off the album, which concludes a scrumptious one hour and change later with Bob’s signature song, his very own “Devil May Care,” with a stopover somewhere in between for my fave of the evening, “Flamingo,” a hit for Duke Ellington Orchestra vocalist Herb Jeffries on the eve of World War II, with Aralee blowing the socks off the house and Bob, Steve and Pat riffing over, under, around and through each other as if they had played together forever.  Which they sort of have. ” – Shaun D.
