Here's a playlist of CHICAGO JAZZ:


R.I.P Earle Lavon Freeman Sr. (October 3, 1923 - August 11, 2012)

The rendition of "Auld Lang Syne" at the end of this video ( 09:06 ) is from the same NPR simulcast session at Chicago's Jazz Showcase but also includes the saxophonists Arnett Cobb on tenor and Lou Donaldson on alto.


During the last decade of his life Von Freeman recorded for Premonition Records, a Chicago-based label. Those CDs can be purchased HERE: http://www.premonitionrecords.com

Here's an interesting article by Whet Moser in Chicago Magazine that compares and contrasts Von's early career with his twilight years. (Be sure to click on the link to Howard Reich's Chicago Tribune article from within the magazine piece.)

Here's the web site of Von's son Chico who is also a saxophone player of world-wide renown. http://v2.chicofreeman.com

Speaking of Chicago jazz, here's an article about saxophonist Diane Ellis by TheMotionDevotion's curator. http://www.TheMotionDevotion.com/docs...
