Kari connects Freda with her mother, how growing up in Detroit, she knew to honor this gift when she was asked to tour with Pearl Bailey, the serendipity of Holland-Dozier-Holland's"Band of Gold," which was that major milestone on her life path that was filled with moments like being Barry Gordy's first protege pre-Motown days, knowing jazz legends Duke Ellington and Jon Hendricks, how scatting is a rare gift, as Freda treats us with her gift of being able to scat acapella in "How High The Moon" and "Lady Be Good," what helps keep her grounded and what song inspires her, as she shares a little about her upcoming new jazz album which features a duet with Johnny Mathis, which is the first time they've sung together, recorded at the legendary Capitol Records building in Studio A.
