A Must-Hear, Long Unreleased Live Recording From Freddie Hubbard

We continue our world time travel tour via laptop, with a visit to San Francisco’s legendary Keystone Korner in 1980, for this ridiculously hot performance by the great jazz trumpeter, Freddie Hubbard. Along with his longtime band mates, bassist Larry Klein, pianist Billy Childs, and trombonist Phil Ranelin, Hubbard explodes music in every direction here. Tight section work, volcanic solos, exquisite combo rhythm, unforgettable melodies – I mean this is the real real. If we needed to pick an example to show some space aliens what we earthlings call “music,” we could start here. Unreleased for 3 decades, now out on Resonance Records. Outstanding.
