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!

"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 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."
