Fred flew to Amsterdam on Friday to start a tour celebrating the music of the legendary organist Jimmy Smith. Rounding out the band are young Italian organist Leonardo Corradi, music director and drummer Tony Match, and trumpeter Flavio Boltro alternating with saxophonist Jesse Davis.
The first stop was the Jazz at the Lake festival, which also featured star saxophonist and longtime friend Candy Dulfer. Other stops include Ronnie Scott's in London and the New Morning in Paris.
Many thanks to Amsterdam photographer Charline Goud for this excellent shot.
