Fred's in Paris this week, where for the fourth year in a row he was a featured instructor at the annual funk workshop organized by French sax woman and longtime friend Djamila Alioua (pictured below to Fred's left). New JBs drummer Bruce Cox worked with drummers this year. Singer Kristle Raynaud (far right below), led the vocal workshop. Participants included the director of the Normandy Conservatory, along with his wife and 13-year-old son (last photo).
I want to say you thanks you again (and to Bruce Cox too) for all things you give me during the workshop.
Your advices are precious. Above all, I’m going to work rythms more ! :-))
To meet you and to play with you are a real experience for me.
Have a good concert in the New Morning with the Froomees Saturday evening.
