Nellie McKay Pays Homage to her Friend and Mentor Bob Dorough, on The Checkout

Jan 24, 2019

It makes sense that Nellie McKay would find a close kinship with the late NEA Jazz Master Bob Dorough. Despite being separated by nearly 60 years in age, both artists found a niche for their quirky and original songs. The duo made one memorable recording together and also toured the world.

On this edition of The Checkout, Nellie McKay pays tribute to her favorite hipster sidekick, who passed away last April. 

McKay just announced a solo spring tour kicking off at New York City’s Birdland, beginning March 5. Her full schedule can be on her website.

And here she is performorming "Lazybones," from her recent album Sister Orchid, in our studio.
