Vintage Freddie Hubbard and the “Keystone Bop”

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):

"Jazz music is something incredible as the sky. It always sounds the same but you hear it differently every time as you tune in. It' s cool to hear classic jazz from old times, tunes from 40-70era always sound way better then any from 90-2000s era. No advertisements on the radio is great too, only nice, flawless jazz."

"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."
