The Passing of a Giant Persona...
Freddie Hubbard...Giant Sound, Giant Personality.
Like an old great tree with many rings of history, He leaves us with a giant body of artistic work, recorded excellence that will live forever. His trumpet and fluegelhorn voice is imprinted in my mind's ears. I need only to point you to his recorded legacy with Art Blakey & The Jazz Messengers, Wayne Shorter, Herbie Hancock, Eric Dolphy, Ornette Coleman, John Coltrane and beyond.
A very thoughtful article on the late, great Freddie Hubbard.
