Art Blakey

I’m reposting this tune. I just needed it this morning.

Artist: Art Blakey and the Jazz Messengers with Freddie Hubbard
Tune: Moanin’

What a great performance by Freddie Hubbard. Freddie Hubbard wasn’t simply a great trumpet player. He was one of those rare virtuosos. He could play any style. He could play jazz, pop music or with a full orchestra. His range was spectacular. In my mind, it was his tone that was just magnetic.
