The early 60’s is where you could hear tiny little hints of Avant-Garde in Hard Bop and most often when Herbie Hancock was behind the piano. Hard Bop was still in full swing and this album is certainly no exception but different elements were slowly being introduced. Let’s not forget Free Jazz was in full swing also (since 1958), so something was trickling in from somewhere already. “Hub-Tones” is considered Freddie Hubbard’s signature album as you will read below and will prove itself to the Jazz Con Class listeners. Personally, I feel “Ready for Freddie” (1961) was where he proved to me that he can be an ultimate band leader. Either way, you can’t lose! Check the schedule link for play times, enjoy!

About the Album:

The Rudy Van Gelder Edition of HUB-TONES includes an essay by Bob Digitally remastered using 24-bit technology by Rudy Van Gelder (1998, Van Gelder Studio, Englewood Cliffs, New Jersey). This is part of the Blue Note Rudy Van Gelder Editions series. Freddie Hubbard’s HUB-TONES, a consummate Blue Note date from the early ’60s, is the trumpeter’s most highly acclaimed disc. Hubbard fronts a standard quintet here, with fine support from James Spaulding, Herbie Hancock, Reggie Workman, and Clifford Jarvis. The trumpeter’s style is more clearly defined than on past efforts with a signature approach that Hubbard would continue throughout the remainder of the hard bop era. Indeed, this particular session signaled Hubbard’s arrival as one of the giants of the trumpet and a leader of modern jazz. Significantly, HUB-TONES establishes Hubbard as a masterful composer as well as an interpreter of standards. The opening “You’re My Everything” is one of the latter, but the remainder of the cuts are Hubbard’s.

"As a college English and Fine Arts professor, I have spent many long days and nights grading and writing papers with your station as my soundtrack. I can't thank you enough for the perfect score for such work, which I've been leaning on for the last four years. I've always been obsessed with jazz, but like many fans, I'm selective and looking to avoid the obvious. Jazz Con Class hits all the right notes, and while I love to hear my favorites (Bird, Trane, Monk, Morgan, Hubbard, Blakey), the variety of deep cuts is what brings me back. Thank you for the thoughtful intent and love for this music that shines through in every playlist."

"Jazz Con Class is a wonderful discovery. I never have to change it because each tune is selected so carefully. It lifts my spirits and at the same time teaches me about a side of music I otherwise wouldn't have exposure to. This is honest, real music and I'm glad to have the chance to listen to it."
