In 1981 in Philadelphia, Scott Marvill assembled a group of musicians eager to play the music they loved, Jazz. This led to their formation of "Freeport." Then Scott moved to NC taking the opportunity to bring the NY/Philadelphia jazz feel to the South. Some highlights have been recording and performing with Tower Of Power, The Temptations, The Four Tops, Special EFX, and Grover Washington Jr.?
"Live At The 2012 Hillsborough Jazz Festival" is FREEPORT captured doing what they do best. Performing live. Listen carefully and you'll hear folks caught up in the energy. Folks dancing, kids playing, etc. This CD gives you that experience. ENJOY!!
Contemporary jazz vocalist, Victor Fields, joins forces with smooth jazz guitarist, Chris Camozzi, for a head-bobbing and soulful rendition of a Lou Rawls classic! The Lou Rawls Project is a sultry, bluesy and easy swinging set featuring lush, sophisticated re-imaginings of ten Rawls classics. Victor's rich gauzy tenor and his ability to move seamlessly between the blues, jazz, R&B and Pop prompted the legendary Lou Rawls to call him “the man with the golden voice” and the Los Angeles Times to describe him as "a stylistically accomplished singer who deserves much more attention."
