New Yorkers often feel they have the entire world at their fingertips in this most multicultural of cities. This has never been more true than it has been since the musical arrival of the very talented and unique – Oleg Frish.
Frish is often referred to as the “International Human Jukebox of Swing,” and with his widely anticipated Nov 12th showcase – a repeat performance at the City’s legendary Iridium Jazz Club, New Yorkers who haven’t already had the chance to see him perform will, according to press notes, ” thrill to experience what has music lovers so excited.” The special guests for the evening will include the veteran jazz singer Marlene Verplanck and newer member of the jazz world Jonathan Karrant.
Oleg brings far more to the stage than just musical talent. It has often been said that “you don’t even have to pack your bags to take a trip around the world with Oleg.” A connoisseur of swing, jazz and the Great American Songbook, he has a deep appreciation and love for classics, and presents the very best — culled from the American and International Songbooks. It is rare to hear a singer who can thrill an audience in several different languages.
Oleg, a charming performer, has “… an enthusiasm and affection for material that should never be forgotten,” as one reviewer wrote about a recent performance. Not only is Oleg a truly international performer with critical acclaim, but, as a popular talk show host, he is also revered for his fun and affable personality.
The connection he has with audiences is special to him. “I share stories about my travels and the people I have met, and of course music. International music. We become friends,” he says with a giant smile. “Nothing could be better.”
On November 12th at Iridium, Frish will be supported by a world-class jazz septet – Peter Zak on piano; David Ephross on bass; Bruce Cox, drums; Jack Cavari, guitar; Bob Milikan, trumpet; Birch Johnson, trombone; and Lawrence Feldman on sax.)
Oleg Frish will deliver many of the upbeat and classic songs that were featured on what he described as his dream-come-true album, the recently released Duets With My American Idols (some of whom include Ben E.King, Bobby Rydell, Melissa Manchester, Tony Orlando, Lainie Kazan, B.J.Thomas, Gary U.S.Bonds, Peggy March, Chris Montez and Lou Christie).
