Review: a breath of fresh air! Tired of hearing jazz that sounds like it all comes from the same source? Check this out! Freeman rocks this set with his own unique style of playing and his pianist is from another planet! The rhythm section is solid. All originals. He played with Charlie Parker, amongst others.
