NOW, A JAZZ MOMENT…
MUSIC: Never Fear Jazz Is Hear (Von Freeman)
CD: The Great Divide
KOCH Records 2004
Von Freeman: The future looks great, it really does. Cause it was lookin bleak about 20 years ago. I was wonderin should I go get me a day job, but I was too old to work during the day!
NEA JAZZ MASTER VON FREEMAN…
Von Freeman: If you’re still playin you still got to cut it. You know, you can’t rest. Well there’s too many great young guys out here now. And not even the young guys can rest cause they got guys younger than young! Lot of em comin around me, man, they outa sight. You sure better know your music and know your horn and not slip too much cause they will blow you right off that bandstand.
