Pickens and Miles, who worked and recorded with Freeman, will be remembering him with a cast of many vocalists and players who loved Von and worked with him over the years including trumpeter Brad Goode, saxophonist Eric Schneider, bassist Larry Kohut, and drummer Robert Shy. They will be joined by vocalists Joanie Pallatto, Jennifer Graham, Catherine Whitney and Margaret Murphy Webb, Betty Reynolds, Dorothy Lyles and Charlotte Foster . They will be performing 2 sets at 8 & 10 pm, and Miles will be auctioning a print of her original painting of Freeman, to benefit the Freeman family.

Miles and Pickens will also be donating copies of their album recorded with and arranged by Freeman to all who come to the show.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
