The Rippingtons: Featuring Russ Freeman Fri. September 29 at 8pm
“When I started the Rippingtons, I never imagined it would last more than the release of one album, let alone thirty years!” said Russ Freeman, leader and founder of the pioneering, GRAMMY® nominated group The Rippingtons, who are celebrating their 30th anniversary with the release of True Stories, the band’s 22nd CD.
True Stories, which released in June 2016, is a refreshing elixir that will delight devout fans and attract new ones. Joined by original Rippington, alto and soprano saxophonist Brandon Fields, drummer Dave Karasony, bassist and rhodes player Rico Belled and special guest Grammy-winning Jeffrey Osborne, Freeman orchestrates ten compelling original song such as “Wild Tales,” “My Promise,” and “Wonderland.”
True Stories is a testament to the unwavering artistry of Russ Freeman and The Rippingtons and confirmation that there are still many more tales to be told. “I’m trying to reach for a place I have not been. I’m looking for inspiration. I never look back. ”It is this forward momentum that propels the notes on True Stories and keeps the listeners yearning for the next chapter. And the cover features the spunky and funk jazz cat that devoted Rippingtons fans are well acquainted with.
