I only found out today that Freddie Hubbard, the great trumpeter, died last week.
Freddie played with Herbie Hancock, my first musical inspiration, on his 60s LPs for Blue Note, including Maiden Voyage, and released some fantastic fusion LPs on CTI in the 70s (Red Clay is my favourite.)
Tomorrow I will try to post this wild cover I have of that tune from the US Air Force Band if I can find it…..
RIP Freddie Hubbard, thanks for the music.
PS Does anyone know which veriosn of Red Clay Tribe Called Quest sampled for Sucka Nigga ?
