The truly iconic Freda Payne has been recording since 1962, performing for over six decades and established herself in the pantheon of entertainers who can traverse with ease musical genres from jazz, R&B, pop and more.  In this personable and informative chat with founder David Nathan – who began conducting interviews with Freda in 1976 – the upbeat Ms. Payne shares about her 2021 autobiography, “Band Of Gold – A Memoir” (penned with Mark Bego), her early years as a recording artist, her most recent CD (which includes duets with the likes of Johnny Mathis, Dee Dee Bridgewater, Kurt Elling and Kenny Lattimore) and 2022 single, “Just To Be With You.”  An enlivening, compelling and enjoyable conversation indeed!
