Chico Freeman

22 Dec

Chico Freeman, son of Von Freeman who is also a saxophonist, went to Northwestern to study math. Fortunately, the only numbers that held his interest were those that accompanied notes. He switched to music and became, with Wynton Marsalis, one of the Young Lions of Jazz from the 1980s. Still recording, still touring, still active, and also now teaching music at the New School.
