We’ll miss you Fred!

Fred Anderson with saxophone at the Velvet Lounge
Very sad news: Chicago jazz legend Fred Anderson has died. I had the honor to photograph Anderson several times; above is a shot taken at the new Velvet Lounge, and below is the album cover for Duets 2001 which I shot at the original location (both pictures shot for the Thrill Jockey label). Fred was beloved by countless fans and fellow musicians–Chicago won’t be the same without him.
