    Freddie Hubbard has taken a belated cue from his Blue Note classic “Goin’ Up”. Now he looks down on 2009 and its transient melodramas. In 2005 the label released a career overview “The Artist Selects” and he did just that with impeccable judgement; the album plays as I type this.

    Here’s an obituary from the US press:
    Great jazz trumpeter Freddie Hubbard dies at 70



    that really was sad news for me. my first jazz concert was the freddie hubbard quintet in 1971 with junior cook on tenor, george cables on electric piano, lennie white on drums and a bassist whose name is lost in the ether of time. it was an outdoor show, a beautiful summer evening and a fiery performance. very shortly after that, i picked up “straight life by mr hubbard on the CTI label. the title track was my personal soundtrack for the next year or so, and remains to this day my favorite freddie hubbard performance.
