Man alive, I feel like we’ve wished a rest-in-peace on so many people this year. But still, Freddie Hubbard deserves special recognition. He was one of the best jazz musicians of all time.
In fact, “Red Clay”, perhaps his most famous song, was even dearer to my heart because of the sample used in the A Tribe Called Quest Song “Sucka Nigga”.
He was one of the greatest, and most underrated musicians of our age and I think we should all pay some tribute to him.
Keep your eyes peeled, I think we’ll have some good stuff up soon in honour of him.
