Back from overseas, heading to the ATL

After swinging through Europe and the French Caribbean island of Guadeloupe, Fred is heading to Atlanta on Friday for a second annual appearance with the ATL Collective for their James Brown Funky Christmas Show at Terminal West. Click here for tickets.

He returned to the States on Monday after a relatively quick tour that began at the Half Note Jazz Club in Athens, Greece, moved through the Bayerischer Hof Jazz Club in Munich, the New Morning in Paris and finished at the Ilojazz Festival in Guadeloupe. Enjoy these photos, including the final stage portrait from Greece by Sotiris Kontos (thanks, Sotiris!).
