Chico Freeman

Born:

Heralded as one of the most important saxophonists of our time, musician, composer and producer Chico Freeman marked his return to the United States after more than a decade living and working in Europe with a new album and a new group in 2016. In the early 2000s, with dozens of recordings as a leader, Freeman moved from New York to Europe to start a new chapter of chico2011exploration by focusing on his own self-improvement and self-reflection. His thirst to immerse himself in his music, his curiosity to explore working with different musicians and living in different cultures and challenging himself to be better than he was, all prepared Freeman for this new stateside chapter of his life. “As much as I’ve travelled and on the road playing with such masters as McCoy Tyner, Elvin Jones, Jack DeJohnette, Sam Rivers, Sun Ra, Dizzy Gillespie and so many jazz greats, as well as leading my own groups including founding “The Leaders” and the group “Roots,” an inner voice was telling me, you need to go to another level both musically and personally,“ Freeman explains

George Freeman: Everybody Say Yeah!

Read "Everybody Say Yeah!" reviewed by Mark Corroto


It took a long time (much too long) for listeners to recognize the brilliance that was Chicago saxophonist Fred Anderson. The New York-centric jazz cognoscenti have often overlooked talent that comes from Chicago, and artists were often drawn to The Big Apple to seek the recognition they deserved. Beginning in the '90s, though, the focal point ...

The Genius of Kenny Kirkland - the Companion Mixtape

Read "The Genius of Kenny Kirkland - the Companion Mixtape" reviewed by Ludovico Granvassu


Compiling a radio playlist is both incredibly satisfying and quite frustrating. Two hours are so quick to fill and one has to often leave out a great number of tracks that would deserve attention but, for a reason or another (length, similarities to other selection, need for variety and flow etc.), don't find a natural spot ...

Lebanon: Jazz And The Revolution

Read "Lebanon: Jazz And The Revolution" reviewed by Ian Patterson


When people's anger and frustration spill onto Beirut's streets, music is one of the first things to suffer. Every few years, it seems, roads are blocked, and crowds swell the downtown area—angry at Syrian intervention or political assassination, enraged by Israeli attack, sick to the teeth of inadequate garbage collection. There's always something to ...

Kip Hanrahan: Crescent Moon Waning

Read "Crescent Moon Waning" reviewed by Vic Albani


Dopo tre anni di gestazione, crowdfounding e il classico perfezionismo che lo ha sempre contraddistinto (il disco è stato in realtà registrato da luglio 2015 a dicembre 2016) con uno strano scadenzario di pubblicazione si può finalmente dire a dicembre 2018 che il nuovo lavoro discografico di Kip Hanharan è finalmente disponibile in tutto il mondo. ...
