In Europe with Abe Inc.

Tonight is stop three in Dortmund, Germany, on Fred's current tour with Abraham Inc.,  which also is taking him through Switzerland and France. Here's a photo from the Tuesday night date in Sartrouville, France. The crowd, as usual, loved the performance and clamored to buy CDs and to get Fred, Socalled and David Krakauer to sign them afterwards.

In the studio with Willi Amrod

Singer/songwriter Willi Amrod, who contributed the lyrics and vocals to "Everywhere is Out of Town" on Fred's latest CD, "With A Little Help From My Friends," is working on his own next album -- which will feature horn arrangements by Fred.

Amrod traveled to Charlotte, NC, last week, where he gathered with Fred, New JBs trumpeter Gary Winters and auxiliary sax man Phillip Whack, and trombonist Victor Wesley, Fred's youngest son, for a horn recording session at Reflection Sound Studios. Enjoy these shots from the day.
