Fred had a busy December that included a residency and concert at Duke University with the Jazz Ensemble led by John Brown, who has since been promoted to the university’s Vice Provost for the Arts (congratulations John!). Thank you to Robert Zimmerman for these photos.
Following the Duke stint, Fred and his band the New JBs flew to London for what’s become an annual Christmastime stand at the legendary Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Club. Thank you to Michael Vitti for this photo.
Finally, the last weekend of 2019 found Fred as a special guest of Norwood Fisher’s funk project Trulio Disgracias at the mind-bendingly multi-media Wisdome in Los Angeles. It was a funky good time to close out a funky decade.
