Local jazz singer Connie Evingson has a new CD out, "Little Did I Dream" - a tribute to the witty local songwriter Dave Frishberg. This is not the first time Evingson has paid tribute to an artist with local roots, but she said she's always been a fan of Frishberg's and the project was long overdue. Frishberg was born in St. Paul and attended the University of Minnesota. He lives in Portland, Oregon now.

During the recording of the album, Frishberg was in the studio and played piano and even sang a little with Connie. She's celebrating the release of the CD with a concert at the Dakota.

Connie Evingson and her band stopped in the studio and played a few tunes for Dale and Jim Ed on The Morning Show.

Songs performed: "Peel Me A Grape" and "Eastwood Lane"
