Freddie Hubbard 1938-2008

Over the years, I've been privileged to see many greats perform in concert. However, I've only had the honor of actually playing with one of those artists. That would be the great Freddie Hubbard who, sadly, left us earlier this week. I posted my account of that evening early on in my blog here.
Here's an mp3 of one of the songs we played that night, Blues for NKWE. Besides Freddie, the featured players are Frank Silva (tenor sax), Steve Bowie (baritone sax), Alex Iles (trombone) and Washington Rucker (drums).
