Artist: Hubbard, Freddie

Trumpet player & Jazz icon Freddie Hubbard is immortalized in this timeless DVD entitled Freddie Hubbard: One of a Kind. Recently deceased, he will always be remembered as a powerful, hard playing purveyor of Bebop and Hard-Bop. Hubbard is also famous for performing on some of the most influential albums of the post Bop era. 

 

Hubbard played the mellophone and trumpet working under local legends Wes and Monk Montgomery, before moving to New York and becoming immersed with some of the city's finest Jazz musicians, including Philly Joe Jones, Sonny Rollins, Slide Hampton, Eric Dolphy, J. J. Johnson, and Quincy Jones.  His recording “Ready For Freddie” solidified him as one of the most innovative and underrated Jazz trumpet players alive, and it's follow-up, the critically acclaimed album “First Light,” not only won him his first Grammy Award, cementing not only his jazz status but also his mainstream appeal.

 

“He wasn't only the hardest-working trumpeter in show business,

he was also  the best, with a gleaming, quicksilver sound that

combined the brass of Louis Armstrong with the bebop power of

Clifford Brown and the melodic grace of  Miles Davis.”                                                                                                                – San Francisco Chronicle
