Funkin' with the Froomees
Fred is in his element this week -- in the recording studio working with the young French band, The Froomees. The amazing Bruce Cox, Fred's drummer in the New JBs for nearly 20 years, also is taking part in the session, and, in Fred's words, "played his ass off last night!" Here are some photos from the day, with captions by Fred.
Bruce helped me. Here he is with co-leaders of the Froomees, Djamila and Kristle.
The rest of the Froomees rhythm section: Pascal, guitar; David, bass; and Simon, piano.
