Freddie Hubbard’s hidden gem “Here To Stay”

It wasn’t too long after his 1960 debut album, “Open Sesame” that Freddie Hubbard would become a household name in the Jazz community. Yes indeed, within a two-year span he managed to record seven albums, all gems. Along with “Open Sesame” you have “Goin’ Up,”  “Hub Cap,” “Ready For Freddie,” The Artistry Of Freddie Hubbard,” Hub-Tones” and this “Here to Stay,” the least appreciated of them all, in my opinion. Every Jazz disciple is very familiar with the common practice of aiding and guiding young upcoming Jazz prodigy by combining their special musical gift with already known and established legends. This idea of supporting and showcasing a future superstar has always been the tactic taken throughout the history of Jazz and is an essential component of its glorious evolution. Freddie Hubbard was one of the chosen to continue this tradition and take it to another “different” level. Hard Bop had now developed into a force and was making history for all future Jazz aficionados to absorb. The Post-Bop movement was on the rise and would be in full swing by the mid ’60s. You can hear the new “attitude” Jazz was taking and it was very exciting!

"I appreciate Jazz Con Class Radio because I love bop, hard bop, and related jazz forms. I especially appreciate Jazz Con Class because of the great range of musicians and cuts that are played. Although I like to hear Miles Davis play So What and John Coltrane play My Favorite Things, familiar cuts like these are heard too often on other jazz stations. Unlike other jazz stations, Jazz Con Class Radio frequently surprises me with great music that is not so familiar to me. I love it. And I also love the absence of commercial interruptions.

Although I am not a musician or an authority on music, I teach a Bop seminar for first-year students at the University of California at Davis. In addition to hearing the music, the students learn about the musicians and urban culture in the 40s, 50s, and 60s. I often play Jazz Con Class Radio at the start and end of class meetings. The music is a wonderful gift. The station is also a wonderful gift."

"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."

"We are very lucky to have Jose and his dedication to play the best of
America's finest and original music. Here's hoping that this obvious
labor of love continues for a very long time. A huge thank you is in
order!"

Yours in Jazz
