What It Is


FreeWorld has been an independent, Memphis-based musical ensemble since 1987 and are currently celebrating their 30th Anniversary in 2017. Drawing from influences as broadbased as Booker T. & the M.G.'s, John Coltrane, Frank Zappa, The Grateful Dead, Steely Dan, and The Meters, these brothers under one multicultural groove have remained a consistently entertaining and informed voice on the Memphis music scene since the group's inception.

FreeWorld's 7th CD release, 'What It Is', their tightest and most ambitious yet - was produced and recorded at world-famous Ardent Studios in Memphis (Led-Zeppelin, R.E.M., Stevie Ray Vaughan, etc.) and features a special guest appearance on drums & vocals by Jody Stephens of Memphis power pop cult classic "Big Star" fame. Sonically, the new disc was mixed by FreeWorld's most successful alumnus, the incomparable Dave Aron (Snoop Dogg, 2Pac, Sublime, Prince, moe., Rob Wasserman, JLo, etc.) at Hollywood Way Studios in Los Angeles, CA, and mastered by Grammy Award winning mastering engineer Brad Blackwood at Euphonic Masters in Memphis, TN, so you know it sounds amazing! We're also proud to feature an amazing painting by Memphis artist David Lynch on the cover. Featuring current band members who range in age from 20-years-young to 87-year-old jazz saxophone legend Dr. Herman Green, (who has performed &/or recorded with the likes of Miles Davis, John Coltrane, B. B. King, Lionel Hampton, Louis Armstrong, Phineas & Calvin Newborn, Bob Weir, Stephen Perkins and a host of others during his 72 year professional music career), FreeWorld is literally "new school meets old school," and has been variously described as "The best of Memphis, New Orleans, and San Francisco - all rolled into one fresh & excitingly unique musical experience!"
