Freddie Washington


Having completed two tours this year with Donald Fagen and Steely Dan, bassist Freddie Washington is ready for whatever comes his way. Known as a player who can inject a lively groove into already great tracks, he is also an articulate and elegant technician who, in the case of working closely with Donald Fagen, delivers when the music demands. Having worked with such names such as Patrice Rushen, the Temptations, and Simon & Garfunkel, Freddie has been the go-to bassist for singers looking for extra groove support. With years of session and touring experience under his belt, he is also considered a bassist that knows how to control the groove. Join Inside MusiCast as we discuss his musical approach, his beginnings, and also his working collaboration with Donald Fagen. We welcome Freddie Washington.
