Saxophonist Chico Freeman and Guitarist George Freeman have never recorded together before All In The Family, released on the Chicago-based Southport, an independent label out of Sparrow Sound Design Recording Studios.
This is traditional acoustic jazz with George's signature electric jazz guitar and vintage amp, featuring all original compositions that remind many of us here at WCLK of everything from Getz to Hancock to Montgomery, while remaining wholly new.
