Sun
Freddie King at Fife Jazz Club
Apr 6 @ 14:00

Freddie is a fabulous internationally known vocalist and this is an ideal opportunity to enjoy his distinctive vocals accompanied by Lachlan MacColl who is known in Edinburgh as the ‘Jazz musician’s jazz guitarist’

“Vocalist Freddie King has a rich vintage wine sound, coupled with a baritone sax timbre, not to mention an excellent way with a lyric. Billy Eckstine fans please note and prepare to change your allegiance immediately. Anyone who has heard him scat-singing will know that vocal improvisation comes to him as second nature. You are either born with that inbuilt feeling for the extemporaneous or you aren’t. You cannot learn it.”
Pat Quinn, Edinburgh Evening News
