Propagating the funk in Paris!
This year's Jazz A La Villette Festival in Paris featured a workshop for 100 horn players led by Fred and the New JBs with longtime co-hort Pee Wee Ellis, organized by French funk workshop maven Djamila Alioua of K'Dense. Photographer/designer/Fred- and funk-supporter extraordinaire Heinrich Buttler was on the scene and took some excellent photos, including these.
Maceo Parker, whose band also played the festival on the sold-out evening of Saturday, Sept. 10, 2011, took the stage briefly with Fred, Pee Wee and the New JBs.
