New York City born hard bop pianist Freddie Redd is perhaps best known for his score for the stage play and subsequent film of the Jack Geller written “The Connection”, which we, of course feature here in our collection. Not only did Freddie write the music but alongside fellow musicians like Jackie McLean he also starred in both the stage play and the film. Such was the project’s success that Freddie was also able to tour with the production around the States and in Europe where he played in London and Paris. Perhaps he became too associated with the play as it did not appear to lead him on to greater successes during the coming years. This is a shame as Freddie would make many fine albums, three others of which we include here. A fine, hard to find, early album recorded in Sweden alongside the Riverside release “San Francisco Suite” and another for Blue Note “Shades of Redd”. Artists Freddie Redd has played with include Tiny Grimes, Art Blakey, Ernestine Anderson, Tina Brooks, Jackie McLean, Paul Chambers, Charles Mingus, Billy Higgins and Lou Donaldson. Still going strong today, Freddie Redd is still out there on the road, completing his last tour as recently as 2013, at the tender age of 85!
