Jazz great, Freddie Hubbard passes




Freddie Hubbard was a tremendous jazz musician. Actually, if I’m not mistaken my friend (and boss) Tony Guerrero gave him a trumpet lesson once ;) Right Tony? (It’s a funny story… maybe he’ll tell it on his blog.)

Anyway, since I’m a trumpet player who marvels at good jazz (‘cause I’m not that good at it) I felt the need to mention Freddie’s passing on my blog!

Here’s a few links for you.
