Von Freeman Celebrates New Album
As many of you may know, Greenleaf Music is affiliated, loosely, with Premonition Records, a Chicago based label that has been putting out jazz records for the past 12 years or so. Premonition has recently released its first album of 2006, a new recording by the 83-year old Chicago Tenor Saxophone Titan Von Freeman. Von and Premonition celebrated the new record, entitled “Good Forever,” with a performance last Thursday night at Chicago’s Millennium Park. In a review posted yesterday, The Chicago Tribune called Von’s performance that evening “mind blowing.” We couldn’t agree more.
