Forever warmly embedded in our hearts and minds, Schoolhouse Rock! sits gilded in the pantheon of radical ‘70s educational TV that revolutionized how generations learned. It forged little heroes of multiplication, helped us hook up words and phrases and clauses, and taught us how an anthropomorphic bill becomes a law. Its iconic look defined the era’s animated aesthetic, and its funky songs are so enmeshed in our collective psyche that the mere mention a title like “Three Is A Magic Number” instantly brings back a flood of tender memories. At the core of this cultural phenomenon is revered jazz cat Bob Dorough, who, after many years collaborating with the likes of Miles Davis and Blossom Dearie, penned (and often sang) a huge number of Schoolhouse Rock’s effervescent tunes. The legendary 90-years-young Dorough, along with Schoolhouse co-creator George Newall, will share how the whole thing came to be — all capped by a once-in-a-lifetime set by Bob and his band of all your favorite Schoolhouse songs.
