    Re: new Freddie article in Downbeat

    Thanks Artie.
    It's amusing to read that Freddie is criticized for pursuing MAMMON ( material wealth ) during the 70's and 80's when such pursuits is an AMERICAN way of life.

    Always felt Freddie and Joe Henderson were a great combination and their dream of creating a recording company was dashed when the ownership of Motown Sounds
    choose not to distribute their proposed recordings.
    Mind you,this is the same ownership who later did the distribution for CTI - Go Figure.

    Let it be known that Freddie and the now departed Joe Henderson are just a few of the cats I've followed since the 60's and not only have they enriched my life but they will always remain close to my heart.

    By the way,visit your local library and get hold of a copy of the August 22,1968,yes 1968
    Downbeat and read Mike Zwerin's sermon (A Critical Matter-Afterthoughts ) about jazz critics and criticism,where he accurately described them as PARASITES.

    In parting,Herbie Mann told me his recording of DISCOTHEQUE in the '70s made him very HAPPY.
    Chuck Mangione was a serious bopper and one who in the late '70s also abandoned BOP for POP and achieved commercial success and much spending loot that POP offers.

    Freddie's name is already etched in GOLD (24 karat) !

    Long Live BOP and The Boppers.

    Trumpet players have come back from the dead before. Bud's career could have ended with that crash. Mendez, Maggio and Al Hirt have taken literal hits to the chops and have come back to play as well, if not better, than before.
    I would love to know what he has done to rehab his chops. There are many of his friends that are waiting for a return call to accept the help that they have offered him.

    There are other things in that article that make me cringe. Interviews like this raise more questions than answer questions.

    Could you help Freddie with his chop problems? What would you suggest that he do? Never in a million years would I think that someone so great would have the difficulties he is experiencing.
    Thank you for your attention to this subject.

    That's the question!
    What the heck has HE done to get his chops back?

    It would be stellar if Freddie were back in shape. Even without the technique that age can take away, he had (and could have again) a sound that I could listen to all day.
