Chico Freeman

Chico Freeman’s Exotica

It is said that the Chicago saxophonist Chico Freeman could almost not be stopped once he took off on one of his avantagarde expressive flights. In the meantime he does not mind handing over his musical partner the leadership and sits down while the cellist Svante Henryson shines in large reverbing spaces with the melodic toppings similar to Eberhard Weber’s approach. Or when the percussionist and instrument maker Reto Weber hits the spheric, metallic sounding hang, his most successful invention so far, and get various matkas, water bowls and hand drums to vibrate
Two-time Grammy nominated saxophonist/composer Chico Freeman announces his new and highly anticipated project featuring some of the most accomplished musicians in the world.

Heralded as one of the most important saxophonists of our time, Chico Freeman has perfected an immediately recognizable approach to music and composition, blending what he has experienced from his past and providing fluidity into a future of infinite musical possibilities.
