Culture George Freeman Tells Us How to Lead a Life in Jazz Marc Vitali| April 11, 2018 5:41 pm
The Freemans of Bronzeville have been called Chicago’s first family of music – and though tenor saxophonist Von Freeman died in 2012 his son Chico plays on, and Von’s younger brother plays on, too.
Chicago Tonight met the guitarist George Freeman the day before his 91st birthday. He gave a history lesson on how to lead a life in jazz.
Upcoming event A Toast to George Freeman celebrates the musician’s life and legacy with a host of performers, including the man himself. The event takes place at noon, Saturday, April 28 at City Winery, 1200 W. Randolph St.
