Freddie Hubbard and “Hub-Tones”

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.

"I just downloaded this app and it's my first (certainly of many!) evenings with you. The music is great but so is the philosophy of why you created this space and the visual and functional appearance of the space.
Congratulations, I don't think I will ever become tired of visiting you!"
