George Freeman

Diersbach, Austria – Excellent weekend playing at the INNtöne Jazz Festival. I spent yesterday afternoon hanging out with the great George Freeman drinking coffee and eating Austrian cake… ah, this is the real jazz life!
At 90 years of age, George is living proof that playing music is good for you and keeps you young.
It was so good to chat with George and hear his stories about playing with Charlie Parker, Lester Young, Ben Webster, Shirley Scott, and of course his nephew Chico Freeman.
Safe flight back to Chicago George, thanks for a great gig!
