Project Description

Fred Anderson – On The Run (Live at Velvet Lounge)

Anderson was one of the founders of the Assoc. for the Advancement of Creative Musicians. Up to now, his individual sound had been under-documented, but this CD would help Fred to be recognized as an important musician in the Chicago tenor tradition, a style he helped shape in avant garde jazz. He owned the Velvet Lounge since the early ’80s & his Sunday jam sessions had since gained international recognition. This album also features Fred’s long-time cohorts, Tatsu Aoki on bass & Hamid Drake on drums, performing five new originals.
