Fred Fried: The Wisdom of Notes

Read "The Wisdom of Notes" reviewed by Jerry D'Souza


On the aptly named disc The Wisdom of Notes, guitarist Fred Fried finds plenty of wisdom in his discourse as he expounds on the extensions that his 7-string instrument provides. He is quite comfortable improvising on a melody, but the harmonic patterns that he extrapolates on his guitar provide the real meat of this outing.

Fred Fried: The Wisdom of Notes

This is a gentle set, but Fred Fried's acoustic guitar, with its seven nylon strings, is unlikely to feature in anything much different. Tony Tedesco plies his brushes resourcefully on his drum kit, but the key to many of the set's successes is the brilliant bass playing of the veteran Michael Moore. Don't even think of ...

Fred Fried: When Winter Comes

Read "When Winter Comes" reviewed by C. Michael Bailey


When Winter Comes is feather-light 7-string acoustic guitar lying on a bed of gossamer strings. That may be a bit of hyperbole, but this disc by Cape Cod guitarist Fred Fried is a collection of spatial and plush original recordings. Mr. Fried plays his guitar more like a piano than a stringed instrument, with the effect ...

Fred Fried: When Winter Comes

Read "When Winter Comes" reviewed by Franz A. Matzner


The use of “classically” arranged string sections within jazz compositions has been relatively commonplace since Charlie Parker’s breakthrough 1949 recording With Strings, more seminal due to its unbridled success than the singularity of the concept. Thus, Fred Fried’s latest release, When Winter Comes , which unites his trio with a string ensemble arranged by Richard DeRosa, ...
