Fabulous Sidemen

Kenny Dorham and Freddie Hubbard both Hard Bop Trumpeters whom didn’t get the same press as Miles Davis or Dizzy Gillespie but were great artist that you can’t overlook. Hank Mobley was a great tenor man recording 25 albums as a leader from 1955 to 1970 on Blue Note. As artist and composers these 3 musicians were and still are underated and need to be represented in any serious Jazz collection. A good starting point with Kenny Dorham is his Blue Note double album ‘Round About Midnight at the Cafe Bohemia. Freddie Hubbards Red Clay and Ready for Freddie albums are must haves. Now Hank Mobley has 2 albums you have to start with and they are Roll Call and Another Workout. These guys are class acts and I listen to them as much as Miles, Gillespie or Parker.

Check out their discography: Kenny Dorham , Freddie Hubbard, and Hank Mobley.
