Freddie Hubbard’s Ready!!

Freddie Hubbard born on this date in Indiana, seems to a favorite of many including myself. My first album of his which introduced him to me was Red Clay and I fell in love with his sound then. He is an incredible artist playing in the style of my favorite genres of  jazz, Bop, Hard Bop and Post Bop. Speaking of his sound, it is his own, being influenced by Clifford Brown and Lee Morgan. Ready For Freddie is perhaps his best album on the Bluenote label with stellar sidemen, Bernard McKinney on the euphonium, Wayne Shorter on tenor sax, McCoy Tyner piano, Art Davis bass and Elvin Jones on drums. Recorded in 1961 at the Van Gelder Studios, this particular album has extra tracks and been remastered making it a RVG album. This is brilliant work, way up on the WOW scale, definitely a must own album. Happy Birthday to Freddie Hubbard! Discover and enjoy!
