RVAjazz - Freddie Hubbard (1938-2008)

[...]Legendary trumpeter Freddie Hubbard died yesterday in the early morning from complications of a heart attack suffered on November 26...Jazz Wax features an in depth look at Hubbard's career[...]


R.I.P. doesn't seems sufficient for Hubbard--maybe N.R.F.F. (No Rest for Freddie) or K.O.J. (Keep on Jammin') or something more pertinent and creative, like the trumpeter himself. But kudos for this sentence, Marc: "On Ready for Freddie, Hubbard's hot metal sound is countered by Shorter's velvet sledgehammer, and there's a clean articulation throughout." Some kinda tribute writin' there, man!
