“George Freeman is the current living warrior of sound, the Mad Max of the 6-string guitar.” – 2018 JazzCorner News.
"Relaxed, unrushed and satisfying like a cool drink on a hot muggy day." "90 Going on Amazing" - 2017 BluJazz - George W. Harris, Jazz Weekly.
George Freeman is a living legend and has toured and/or recorded with musical legends from Charlie Parker to Lester Young, Johnny Griffin, Richard "Groove" Holmes, Gene Ammons, to Dinah Washington, along with his brothers Von Freeman and Bruz Freeman and his nephew Chico Freeman. George Freeman turns 92 on April 10, 2019.
Keeping things of on track #1, "George The Bomb!" harp master extraordinaire Billy Branch sends out a sound that explodes! His sly way of comping on the title track gets the groove rocking and rolling. The surprise here is when Freeman breaks into a full vocal scat! Is it jazz or is it blues? To hear Billy Branch sing the blues standard "Help Me", track #5, while showcasing his authentic blues harp alongside Freeman's searing guitar is the breakout culmination of their collaboration.
George Freeman, electric guitar and vocals; Billy Branch, harmonica and vocals; John Devlin , 6-string electric bass, accordion and vocals; Luiz Ewerling, drums and percussion; Joanie Pallatto, vocals and Bradley Parker-Sparrow, piano.
