Arlington to Carthage and beyond

Fred has begun a Generations Trio tour that will take him through Europe and into Africa -- to the Jazz A Carthage Festival in Tunisia.

Many thanks to Madrid's Sala Clamores and Madrid fans for kicking things off.  Special thanks to Ivan Martinez for tweeting these great shots from Saturday's sold-out show. Hola to Malaga, where the band plays tonight at La Cochera Cabaret.

Before leaving the United States, Fred flashed back to his days in the 55th Army Band, 1964-67, at Redstone Arsenal in Huntsville, Alabama. He visited Fort Myer in Arlington, Virginia, for a featured performance during the Army Band's annual American Trombone Workshop. Many thanks to trombonist Victor Barranco and all the band members and others who made it such a fun night.

Finally, a flash back to January's Hymns and Spirituals concert in Charleston. Click here to enjoy photos from Reece Moore.
