Where's Fred? Revisiting the third grade

Fred took his horn and spent some time this week with third graders at Morningview Elementary School in Montgomery, Ala. Invited by school librarian Shewana Stewart, he played a little music, answered some questions and shared video of funky good time past. Up next, he'll be communing soon with college students in upstate New York before he heads off in May for his first Europe tour of the year with his New JBs. Stay tuned for more info,
