Fred Anderson – 21st Century Chase: Live at the Velvet Lounge
Delmark DE 589
Compact Disc (2009) – Also Available on DVD!
Chicago tenor saxophone legend and proprietor of the longest standing and most adventurous avant garde jazz club in Chicago, Fred Anderson celebrated his 80th birthday in March and Delmark was there to capture it. All three of Fred’s earlier Delmark albums were recorded live at the Velvet Lounge, but the excitement level here is unmatched and the show sold out weeks in advance! Fred is joined by Kidd Jordan, tenor saxophone; Jeff Parker, guitar; Harrison Bankhead, bass; Chad Taylor, drums.
