Third and final post dedicated to the late great Freddie Hubbard. Forget his jazz - funk extravaganzas of the 70s; this time it's as straight-ahead as can be in the mold this great 1985 performance for Blue Note records 50th anniversary below playing Herbie Hancock's Cantaloupe Island (from Herbie's Empyrean Isles of 1964, an LP Hubbard originally appeared - and excelled - in) amply demonstrates.
The attitude of the gallant Six Hundred which so aroused Lord Tennyson's admiration arose from the fact that the least disposition to ask the reason why was discouraged by tricing the would-be inquirer to the triangle and flogging him into insensibility.

Music posted here is for information purposes only. I don't subscribe to the notion that record companies are ripped off by the proliferation of blogs like this one. It is my firm belief that quite the contrary happens i.e. by bringing awareness to hitherto virtually unknown artists to the general public the music benefits greatly and a new level of interest is created.
Listeners are therefore kindly requested to buy the original music and support artists if they fancy what they hear - remember: if you like it, buy it!
