Tenor Saxophone Fathers & Sons
Tenor Saxophone Fathers & Sons

Here's a cross-generational tenor saxophone meeting. These tough tenors include (left to right): Dewey Redman, the grizzled New Thing veteran who worked with Ornette Coleman and Keith Jarrett; his son, Joshua Redman, looked on as the mainstream hope for the horn; Chico Freeman, a Chicagoan, now resident in New York who varies his playing from straight jazz to hiphop manifestations, and his father, Von Freeman, the most famous unknown saxophonist in the Windy City.
