Recorded live in Dublin 1976 (solos from two sessions).
Mastered in 2007 at Blue Noise Studio, Hamburg.

Lawrence "Bud" Freeman (April 13, 1906 in Chicago - March 15, 1991 in Chicago), one of the top tenors of the 1930s, was also one of the few saxophonists to be accepted in the Dixieland world and his oddly angular but consistently swinging solos were an asset to a countless number of hot sessions. His smooth and full tenor sax style with a heavy robust swing was the only strong alternative to Coleman Hawkins' harder toned approach, until the arrival of Lester Young whom Freeman had allegedly influenced (although Young himself denied this, citing Frank Trumbauer as his main influence).
