Product Description

Von Freeman's first for Premonition. A live date recorded at the Twin Cities #1 Jazz establishment, this one features Vonski in very fine form backed by a great local rhythm section led by the legendary Twin Cities pianist Bobby Peterson. Highlights include Vonski's solo version of My Little Brown Book and his original tribute to Sunnyland Slim, Blues for Sunnyland. Also, some great Freeman speechifying here.

Musicians: Von Freeman, tenor saxophone; Bobby Peterson, piano; Terry Burns, acoustic bass; and Phil Hey, drums. Von Freeman was a 2012 NEA Jazzmaster.


Freeman on an absolute tear. --Downbeat

Format: Audio CD
It was for good reason that Sonny Stitt said that Von Freeman was "one of the guys playing in the big leagues," and that Roland Kirk swore by him and produced the first record under Von's name for Atlantic in the 1960's. Since then Von has only gotten better. The rhythm section for this live date was solid and Von was on fire. His distinctive sound is a mix of Dexter, Gene Ammons, Stitt, Trane and rich tradition. His solos on the up tempo numbers are exciting and inventive. For me, his ballad playing is as moving as anything you've ever heard. If you love jazz, and you love major tenor players, this album, and Von Freeman are for you. Enjoy!
