Vibraphonist and composer Mike Freeman has been a part of the New York jazz and Latin music scene for a day or two. Dan McClaneghan of Allaboutjazz described him as "masterful" and ranked among other top names of the instrument. With spirited soulful swing, Freeman's performances have taken him from North America and Europe to the Azores, Caribbean, and South America. His recordings of original music include tributes to Cal Tjader, Tito Puente, and NEA Jazz Master Bobby Hutcherson. Freeman’s recordings have received national and international attention and extensive radio airplay, charting on jazz, contemporary jazz, and World Music radio. A 2019 & 2021 LMCC grantee Freeman produced Latin Music In Hell's Kitchen & Hell’s Kitchen Soul Sauce
