Here’s a great vintage Freddie Hubbard recording that is not praised enough because of the year it was made. 1981 wasn’t a very “popular” year for Jazz and for three legendary Jazz musicians that specifically helped modernize Jazz 20 years prior, in the mid 60’s. This LIVE recording was an excellent example of how special they were and how they didn’t lose a single beat! We’re talking about Freddie Hubbard, Joe Henderson and Bobby Hutcherson in their 40’s and in a non-studio atmosphere, at Keystone Korner, San Francisco, California. This album was recorded on a weekend and released in two volumes. Volume One featured Sunday’s performances and Volume Two featured Friday and Saturday. These two albums are a must-have and an ideal investment for a Jazz collector, not to mention, it is a historical weekend, time will tell!

Here’s a great example here’s “Red Clay” (from the Friday/Saturday Session):
