O’s Notes: This is a true family affair featuring saxophonist Chico Freeman, son of the late Von Freeman (sax) and his lesser-known brother, guitarist George Freeman. Chico leads the charge focused on the blues based Chicago jazz sound. They achieve this by employing Chicago-based musicians including percussionist Hamid Drake and bassist Harrison Bankhead. The mission is accomplished highlighted by “Latina Bonita” and “Inner Orchestrations”.
