Bee Jazz (France) has just released “Da Vinci”, my duo CD with the wonderful Italian clarinetist Nico Gori. He is really remarkable!

Go to the “Music” page and you will find 4 new videos of my trio (with John Hébert on bass and Eric McPherson on drums) shot in Muri, Switzerland from Fred’s 8-country trio tour in November 2011.
“Alone at the Vanguard” has been nominated for two 2120 Grammy Awards: for Best Jazz Instrumental Performance (for the entire CD) and for Best Jazz Instrumental Solo for the track “Work” by Thelonious Monk. These are Fred’s 4th and 5th Grammy nominations.
Grammys are telecast on February 12th.
