Freddie Hubbard and Woody Shaw were modern jazz’s standard bearers. In terms of harmonic control, no trumpet players have come close to breaking the kind of ground they did, decades ago.
I remember when Sweet Return first came out. I loved it! There is a lick Freddie Hubbard plays on that album that completely changed my approach to improvisation. The balance on this video is not so hot. You can barely hear the trumpet at all. But it’s a great opportunity to see how he plays.
