Fred Anderson

In addition to performing in jam sessions at his own Velvet Lounge (see separate listing), epic tenor soloist Fred Anderson will twice this week plug his just-released double CD Fred (Southport)--a terrific recasting of his free-jazz lyricism within the context of relatively conventional compositions spearheaded by bassist Tatsu Aoki. Wednesday, August 27, as part of the Jazz Club Tour, the album's trio--comprising Aoki and sensitively energetic drummer Afifi Phillard--will perform at the Velvet in the official CD-

release party. But the concert Saturday, August 30, from 1 to 4 PM at Jazz Record Mart (444 N. Wabash; 312-222-1467), will serve much the same purpose; also, it's free, in the other sense of the term.
