Lord Riff and Me, recorded in New York in 1987, is the companion album to Morning Prayer, Chico's 1976 debut for Masahiko Yuh's Why Not label. Chico is from Chicago and was active in the AACM School of Music in the 70's. Since then Freeman has toured the world and recorded frequently - collaborating with the likes of Wynton Marsalis, Chaka Khan, Celia Cruz, Hilton Ruiz and Tito Puente. He is the son of Von Freeman - also a tenor saxophonist. Father and son are reunited here on this rousing session accompanied by a wonderful rhythm section comprising pianist George Cables, bassist Cecil McBee and Billy Hart on drums.
