In Bologna; almost home

Fred is in Bologna, Italy, where he'll reunite tonight at the Bravo Caffe with organist Leonardo Corradi and drummer Tony Match for their trio tribute to the timeless groove of Jimmy Smith. (Many thanks to El Transistor for capturing the trio in Granada, Spain.) They'll head to France tomorrow for a show in Clermont-Ferrand that marks the last date for Fred in a marathon seven-weeks on the road that began in New York City in early October.

He had a few days rest in Paris after finishing a fun 10-days Sunday with his talented musical compadres in the klezmer-funk-hip hop party Abraham Incorporated: David Krakauer, Socalled, C-Rayz WalzMichael SarinSheryl Bailey, Allen Watsky, Nicki Parrott, Freddie Hendrix and Phillip Whack.

In Berlin, he had a chance to see The Illusionists, and to visit with the show's musical director Dustin Moore and Kenn Michael, the talented son of his longtime friend Lola Love. He also crossed paths  there with musical friends including guitarist John Scofield and drummer Jack DeJohnnette.
