George Freeman


Guitarist George Freeman has been a crucial figure on the Chicago jazz scene since the 1940s when he and his brothers Von and Bruz Freeman were the house band at the famed Pershing Hotel—where they backed such jazz greats as Lester Young and Charlie Parker. George has performed and toured in the groups of Jackie Wilson, Groove Holmes, and Gene Ammons, and has led his own projects in Chicago for several decades.
