Dave Frishberg, Retromania, at the Jazz Bakery is a timely release for you and your listeners with the start of the 2009 Baseball season. Included in the live set are favorites such as Van Lingle Mungo, Frishberg's first and best known baseball song, and Dodger Blue, as well as Play Ball and Matty, which is about the great pitcher Christy Mathewson, who was elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame as one of its first five inaugural members. Additional material includes a generous helping of music from a baseball-themed musical Frishberg wrote called The Catbird Seat, plus a handful of his perennial requests, including My Attorney Bernie and Can't Take You Nowhere. As this is a live recording, Frishberg imparts spoken intros for the songs that I think you'll find very interesting.
