Jazz Fest, Macau, Europe

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 for an overview recap of Jazz Fest, and here for an excellent photo recap from Dino Perrucci, including this shot. Thanks, Dino! Thanks, New Orleans!

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.

Also enjoy these shots from the talented Fabiana Laurenzi from the band's appearance in March at the Giotto Jazz Fest in Viccio, Italy. Thanks, Fabiana!

Finally,  here are some family photos from along the way.
