Fred Anderson – On The Run: Live at the Velvet Lounge
Delmark DG 534 (2001)
Fred Anderson is one of the founders of the Association for the Advancement of Creative Musicians (AACM). Up to now his individual sound has been under documented but this CD will help allow Fred to be recognized as an important musician in the Chicago tenor tradition, a tradition he helped shape in avant garde jazz. Fred has owned the Velvet Lounge since the early ’80s and his Sunday jam sessions have gained international recognition. On The Run also features Fred’s long-time cohorts Tatsu Aoki on bass and Hamid Drake on drums. Five new originals, 72 minutes.
