      What was your favorite part of the performance? fun to hear the banter between Freebo and Jeff... similar to one of Joe Rathburn's Folkey Monkey Acoustic Showcases here in San Diego.

      I wasn't able to watch the live broadcast of the show last night. I'd still like to see it. Was it recorded? How do I find it?

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”.
