Freddie Freeloader t shirt by Daniel Davidson

£ 39.00

Kind of Blue was recorded in two sessions at The Columbia Records studio in New York on March 2nd and April 22nd 1959.  Freddie Freeloader was one of the three tracks recorded on the 2nd March. The track is named after a fan, Freddie, who wanted to watch Miles Davis play but was reluctant about paying, hence Freeloader. Wynton Kelly was the pianist on this track rather than Bill Evans who played on all the others and co wrote two of them.   Wynton Kelly, who died at the tragically young age of 39, was considered a specialist blues pianist.

Our t-shirts are unique for being wholly made with CoolMax freshFX. CoolMax is a patented fibre designed to wick perspiration and accelerate moisture evaporation, keeping wearers cooler and drier. This wicking feature of the fabric is made possible by micro channels engineered into the profile of and surface of the fibre. These channels are cleverly dimensioned to exploit the surface tension and capillary action of water. Being physical properties of the fibre, these channels endure and do not significantly diminish with wear or washing.

Antimicrobial (freshFX) treatment stops the propagation of odour producing bacteria. This is achieved by embedding silver salt crystals into the structure of the fibre. FreshFX treatment like the wicking is permanent and does not leach out with everyday use. These characteristics ensure the shirts remain cool, dry and odour free regardless of what you might do in them. Performance of the fabric is guaranteed through a certified and monitored manufacturing process.
