Born into the Freeman family legacy of Chicago, which includes his father, legendary NEA Jazz Master saxophonist Von Freeman and his uncles, guitarist George Freeman and drummer Bruz Freeman, Chico Freeman built a diverse following while performing R&B, blues, hard bop and avant-garde. Returning to Chicago is more than a homecoming for Chico, it is also a 90th birthday celebration for his Uncle George, who will join the band at the Jazz Showcase on Sunday, May 28th. Adding to the Chicago magic, pianist Anthony Wonsey and bassist Kenny Davis were mentored by Chico’s father and join Chico Freeman Plus+tet along with drummer Rudy Royston.
