Freddie Hubbard (1938-2008)

Jazz trumpeter, Freddie Hubbard, died Monday at the age of 70.

Only being somewhat familiar with his work, namely his work with Coltrane in Africa/Brass and Ascension, and on Ornette Coleman's Free Jazz album, it's probably best to let this video clip speak for him.

Here he is in 1982 playing alongside two of my heroes: Drummer, Tony Williams and bassist, Ron Carter.



R.I.P. Mr. Hubbard.
