Freddie Hubbard

Freddie Hubbard, (Indianapolis, April 7, 1938 – Sherman Oaks, California, December 29, 2008), was born into a family of musicians. He practiced the mellophone at John Hope Junior High School, but just a year later he switched to the trumpet, making that instrument compatible with the French horn. At that time, he worked with the group “The Contemporaries” and with the Montgomery brothers’ band – Wes on guitar, Buddy on vibraphone and Monk on electric bass).

In 1958, he moved to New York and, having overcome the first impression of his visit to the Big Apple, he played at the “Turbo Village” first with saxophonist Joe Cameron and later with his own group. In 1959 he traveled to San Francisco as a member of Sonny Rollins’ band with which he spent just two months. In 1660 he was with Slide Hampton’s octet and trombonist JJ Johnson’s sextet and even then he was a regular at the famous “Birdland” Mondays. That same year he debuted as a session leader, recording for “Blue Note” a five-star album titled “Open Sesame,” an album that allowed him to gain entry to the Olympus of trumpet greats and only at the age of 21.

That wonderful recording debut allowed him to record in 1961 with tenor sax master Dexter Gordon (Doin’t Alright-Blue Note) with Oliver Nelson on another masterpiece (The Blues and the Abstract Truth-Impulse!) with Quincy Jones (The Quintessence -Impulse) and with the alto sax, Jackie McLean (Bluesnik-Blue Note) among other great musicians. He replaced Lee Morgan in Art Blakey’s “Jazz Messengers”, remaining in the drum master’s group for three years and in some New York jazz circles, he was beginning to be called the “new Miles Davis”.

In 1966 he signed for the Atlantic label where he left a magnificent album titled “Backlash” and in 1976 he signed for producer Cred Taylor’s label “CTI” where he left some magnificent titles, among them, “Red Clay”, an album that in addition to releasing popularity to Freddie Hubbard like no other jazz musician, it was a recording that many jazz musicians have grown up influenced by.

Freddie Hubbard died at his home in Los Angeles and while he lived, he participated in various projects, recording albums, attending jazz festivals (the last one in Warsaw) and transmitting his music to new generations.

In 2006, the National Endowment for the Arts accorded Hubbard its highest honor in jazz, the NEA Jazz Masters Award.

On December 29, 2008, Hubbard died in Sherman Oaks, Los Angeles, California from complications caused by a heart attack he suffered on November 26. Hubbard’s body was cremated, with his ashes given to his family.

Hubbard had close ties to the Jazz Foundation of America in his later years. The Jazz Foundation of America’s Musicians’ Emergency Fund took care of him during times of illness. He is quoted as saying, “When I had congestive heart failure and couldn’t work, the Jazz Foundation paid my mortgage for several months and saved my home! Thank God for those people.”

After his death, Hubbard’s estate requested that tax-deductible donations be made in his name to the Jazz Foundation.
