Fred made an appearance Friday at Art Beats + Lyrics, playing with trumpeter Russell Gunn and his band. The event brings together visual artists with poets, rappers and musicians in a multi-faceted showcase for unrecognized urban artists. Here are shots of the scene from Fred's camera.

Fred started the day at WCLK, 91.9-FM, as the guest of Jamal Ahmad, host of the show, The Soul of Jazz. Fred was impressed by Ahmad's interviewing skills, saying it was the best interview he'd had in a long time. "You were prepared and you asked good questions," he said. Another highlight was the montage of Fred's music put together by station production manager Marquis Lofton.
