Hub Bones

December 29, 2008

Freddie’s dead,
whatever
dead is.

Amen to this
brother
in jazz
and life
who ground his horn
on the edge.

  1. This is the first I heard of his passing. I really dig Hubbard’s work, especially the album “Ready for Freddie.” Thanks for putting some kind words down in his memory.

    Johnny, he was/is my favorite trumpet player. My post does not do him justice but I could not let his passing go by without a word. I know you are a jazz lover. I do not own a copy of “Ready” but it was on my buy list. I will check it out on LaLa. He is one of the jazz artists I always wanted to see but did not. I will have to catch him on the other side.
