Fred Forney plays mainstream, straight-ahead, real jazz music.
Fueled by the passion, fire, soulfulness, and intimacy of jazz trumpeters Miles Davis, Freddie Hubbard, Kenny Wheeler, and Chet Baker, his music is reminiscent of hard bop and cool styles from the ’50s and contemporary European jazz of the ’80s and ’90s.
Into The Mist is an eloquent album of inventive jazz with sophisticated harmonies and intriguing tempo shifts.
