Fred got the royal treatment as usual in New Orleans, where he took part last week in Shorty Fest
, Fiya Fest
, and -- with saxophone great Donald Harrison
-- the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Fest
. Click here

Thanks, too, to the organizers of the Macau International Jazz Festival
, where Fred enjoyed meeting and hearing Sizhukong
, The Mingus Project
and Stefano Bollani
. The special edition of the New JBs included Victor Wesley on trombone, Vince Evans on keys and Joel Johnson on guitar.
