Chico Freeman Quartet

FRI & SAT • APR 5 & 6
7:00 PM & 9:30 PM

Chico Freeman is a modern jazz tenor saxophonist and son of jazz saxophonist Von Freeman. He began recording as lead musician in 1976 with Morning Prayer, won the New York Jazz Award in 1979 and earned the Stereo Review Record of the Year in 1981 for his album The Outside Within.

Heralded as one of the most important saxophonists of our time, Chico Freeman marked his return to the United States after more than a decade living and working in Europe with a new album and a new group in 2016. Freeman has a thirst to immerse himself in his music and a curiosity to explore, working with different musicians and living in different cultures. He has perfected an immediately recognizable approach to music and composition, blending what he has experienced from his past and providing fluidity into a future of infinite musical possibilities.

Chico has a new group made up of great musicians. See Zaccai Curtis: piano, Essiet Okon Essiet: bass, Jason Brown: drums for this special engagement!
