Chico’s early influences included Miles Davis and Winton Marsalis, and so it comes as no surprise that his reviews describe him as modern/progressive/fusion jazz. His performance is also described as muscular.
You can catch the Chico Freeman Plus+tet act Saturday 8/13, 3:30 pm in the KCSM Music Lounge at the Pagoda at Fairmont San Jose, and at 7 pm on the California Theater Stage presented by the Silicon Valley Community Foundation. In addition to this show at Summer Fest, Chico will be playing at Yoshi’s, Oakland 8/14; Seattle 8/16; Ft. Bragg, 8/19 and then Freeman is off to Europe. Click here for more on his tour dates.
