Freddie Hubbard (1938 - 2008)

Never the notoriety and drama and siz of Miles, but what a beautiful sound. First heard this on Milt Jackson's glorious "Sunflower" album. Freddie passes on today in Los Angeles.

That is a warm, sweet tone he's getting. I've enjoyed your turn here, spinning tunes for us... thanks!

Tammie: I would not have expected to run across the notice of his death, but there it was on my email sign in page. Milt Jackson's 1972 Sunflower album, on which Freddie figured so beautifully, has been a mainstay in my collection since I discovered it in 1974.

Sounds slightly bossa-nova-ish :)

It's a shame he won't be seeing 2009, but hopefully we will and may it be a good one.

DM: It does have sort of a lush Jobim sound.

Happy New Year to you...

Didn't know you had a cool jazz side to you, Paschal. Lovely bit of tweedly improv. Thank you for sharing this. I'm sure the good man will be missed.

Peace! & Happy New Year!

Lee: "Tweedly improv." Now there's a new twist. Glad you enjoyed the man.
