Chico Freeman

Director: Frank Cassenti
Genre: Live Show


“Far from the media spotlight, the Chicago saxophonist, son of Von Freeman, child of the free, but faithful to the tradition, lives jazz as a passion, without compromise. Now in his sixties, his enthusiastic and honest speech illustrates an approach to his art inherited from his predecessors and fortified by countless encounters and experiences: Memphis Slim, Buddy Guy, Earth Wind & Fire, The Temptations, Charles Mingus, Dizzy Gillespie, Sun Ra, Elvin Jones, McCoy Tyner, Don Pullen, Tito Puente, …
Chico Freeman and “Guataca” synthesize African rhythmic structures through an exploration of Afro-Cuban, Afro-American and Middle-East jazz music, mixed with other rhythms, creating a unique experience that opens our ears to unexpected sounds. This music invites the listener to a journey that transcends time and space and takes us back to the deepest roots of Cuban music.”
