Fred Anderson Returns to the Stage

After a long illness, Fred Anderson is performing again.

It has been more than six months since Fred Anderson played in public, and some listeners have been wondering whether he ever would perform again.

But this weekend, the 78-year-old tenor saxophone giant will return to the stage of the Velvet Lounge, the South Side club he developed as a nexus for new music in Chicago. Better still, Sunday’s cameo performance with the Great Black Music Ensemble will launch a month’s worth of dates that will place Anderson directly in the spotlight — where he belongs.
