Tell us a little about your background...
I'm a Smooth Jazz Guitarist. My first debut CD was out in 2003 and it went Chartbound on the Smoothjazz.com for 10 weeks. I've been a side man for years and now it's time for me to step out once again. You've heard me on the Number 1 single Billboard & Smoothjazz.com and Grammy winning song "Morning" with George Benson & Al Jarreau "Givin' It Up" CD and also on the single "Ordinary People". I'm on Marion Meadows CD "Dressed To Chill" (6 on Smoothjazz.com & 4 on Billboard), I play on 8 songs "Dress To Chill" guitar rhythm & solo, "Remember Me"-rhythm guitar, "Dance With My Daughter", "Miss Know It All", "Bounce", "Just My Style", "1000 Dreams", "To Love Her". I'm playing Flugelhorn and guitar on "Coco Flow" too! I'm also on Marion Meadow's "Players Club"- rhythm & solo on that tune, "Sweet Grapes", "Suede", "Diggable"-rhythm & solo, "Step A Little Closer" -rhythm & solo, "Deska"-rhythm guitar, "After 6". I've now finished my second CD called "Feelin' It". I have Nelson Rangell on sax, Najee on sax, Walter Beasley on sax, Michael Lington on sax, Luis Conte on percussion, and my wife Evelyn "Champagne" King on lead vocals on "Happy Feelings"!, Alex Al on bass, Mel Brown on bass, Michael White on drums, Michael Broening ..s, and also produced and co-wrote two songs ("Stilll Lovin' You" and "No U Turn", etc... Darren Rahn mixed one song "Just 4 U" co-written with Preston Glass. So I'm back for my second time around! Calling me a new-comer or undiscovered would be an egregious mistake. I'm born in Tennessee, Berklee College Of Music educated, So Cal bred (at least for the past 20 years)… Tours with names you know (Atlantic Starr, Jennifer Holliday, Vesta Williams, Eric Benet, Rose Royce, Sheila E, and my wife, Evelyn “Champagne” King, Michel Polnareff (France), Michael Lington) and albums from equally famous folk (Walter Beasley, Warren Hill, Curtis Stigers, Najee, Michael Lington, Marion Meadows, Evelyn "Champagne" King, George Benson). None of this would mean a thing, though, if my new project weren’t such an outstanding sophomore effort. These days it takes something special to really perk up our ears here in SmoothJazzland. And I've delivered just that! Fact is, I get it! I know what works for Smooth Jazz right now. This one’s a slam dunk, one fashionable track right after the other. So what’s left? You must hear it! * See it * Experience " Freddie Fox" the gentle southern man.

Hey Freddie, I am new to the sight and still making the rounds of all talent here. Checked you out real sweet and funky, maybe we will cross paths down the line here in LA. Check my site bajimusic.com you may remember some of my Donald Byrd stuff.
Love your new CD "Feelin' It"!!! definitely smooth jazz ready...It's good to see you step back into the spotlight. I've known about your bacup and session work for a long time. Keep it going, and you will rewrite the smooth jazz format.
Jaijai, what a wonderful mission you've undertaken to create such a place for artistic minds to meet and share their hearts. A place to renew faded determinations, and revive lessened momentums. A place to display our wares and reconfirm to one another that we actually are on the right track.
I commend you, Jaijai, for caring so much that you created this castle of the heart for all of us. I want to share my praise for all of the new friends as well as old friends that I've met and will meet here in our castle. Here we can garnish the where-with-all, the strength, the conviction, and the selflessness through our symbiosis, to share our gift to the world with an unbiased agenda.
My mentor, Daisaku Ikeda says of art: "A beautiful flower delights and refreshes the hearts of all people equally, no matter what soil it grows in. That is the power of beauty. The same is true of great art. It is this spirit that the German poet Heinrich Heine sang of when he wrote that once the peapod bursts open, the sugar peas inside are for everyone to enjoy."
