      I greatly enjoyed watching you, Alice, and Florence playing together. It felt like I was back with you at one of the workshops. It was sweet to see Harlow and Hepburn too. Makes me even sadder that I can't make the workshop this year. Hopefully, next year. Safe travels in all that you do and give, Freebo. Tom Darcey

      I have been a fan of Freebo for decades, and from what I saw I really liked Alice Howe as well (I think she would do well here in Austin). Regrettably, I have continuous problems with Concert Window - the video and audio cuts in and out, freezes, etc. I have a 300MB down connection, and I am using a current generation Apple MacBook Pro running the latest version of the OS. I have tried Safari and Firefox; they both have the same problems. Is this a common problem, or is it just me? If it is me, is there perhaps some kind of setting that I have incorrect that could solve the issues?

      What was your favorite part of the performance? I missed it because I was on the bus in commute traffic coming home from work until 7:30 but I watched him on YouTube and I I loved that.

Freebo's bio is best stated by several writers who have reviewed his most recent CD, the aptly named "Something To Believe"....
PAUL ZOLLO, Songwriters On Songwriting: "Freebo is more than a beloved musician, he’s an institution. Most famous for the funkified precision and fluid soul of his bass playing for Bonnie Raitt, he’s also a longtime beloved studio cat, a musician’s musician, sought out for his greatness in the studio by everyone from Ringo and Dr. John to CSN, Joe Walsh, Aaron Neville, Maria Muldaur and the late great Willie DeVille. But Freebo is more than one of LA's best players, as those in the know have known for a long time: he’s also a richly gifted and distinctive songwriter whose own voice as a singer-songwriter hasn’t received the attention it’s been due. But the guy is a seriously good writer, as expressive in his writing as on a bass." If anyone has written a more poignant song about homelessness than “When There’s No Place Like Home”, I haven’t heard it yet. Because it’s aiming high, to write a song about a subject so hopeless without being hopelessly maudlin or cliché, so most songwriters don’t even try. Freebo does it with easy grace, as simple and right as the beautifully understated arrangement. It’s a song of kindred spirit, and it’s a remarkable amalgam of influences, as if Harold Arlen collaborated with Pete Seeger, a timelessly tuneful chorus with lyric of folk wisdom and compassion.”

Walt Falconer, CoolAlbumOfTheDay.com: “Listening to Freebo is like riding on a cumulus cloud of peaceful awareness. His songs are at once uplifting, while also serving as mini socio-economic history lessons interspersed with beautifully spiritual melodic love songs in his own cosmic blend of country/blues/folk/rock/soul ear-pleasing genre defying music".

Janet Goodman, Music News Nashville: “Freebo’s intimate and go-down-easy personable vocals can tie in light-hearted fare, social commentary, and spiritual quest with love-sweet-love, and make it sound seamless”.

Russ Paris, Folkworks.org: “Standing Ovation is an astounding song which encompasses a profound view of life. It is destined to become a classic”.
