Freddie Hubbard 1938 - 2008

Interrupting my Holiday blogging hiatus to note that jazz legend Freddie Hubbard has passed away. Freddie had a long and storied career and is considered one of the greatest trumpeters in the history of jazz. Down Beat has more.

Another absolute legend has left us, god speed Freddie.

Here's Freddie performing his solo composition "Straight Life" in 1975
