here’s another freddie hubbard show, from almost exactly 10 years later.  why have one when two will do as well or (as here) even better?  saturday turned into a bit of a hubbard-fest around here, not stopping with two shows, but that’s all for tonight.

this was (re)seeded by ubu on dime back in 2008.

finally got our car up & running, those little things like insurance, license plates, etc can be a challenge in the right (or wrong) circumstances.  so, driving to work on friday in the car for the first time, i had a handful of usb thumb drives, but out of all that, this show was the only thing that would play on the car stereo…

i downloaded this in august 2014, when ‘jazamo’ seeded it on dime, commenting that “here’s a nice set from freddie hubbard recorded in 1977. freddie moves away from his standard lineup replacing the tenor sax with electric guitar on this tour. re-seeded here in it’s original fm broadcast mp2 codec, the sound is excellent. many thanks to the original seeder!”   thanks, jazamo!

no covers today.

here’s a nice show from the national concert hall in dublin that i recorded off the air & seeded on dime in 2007.  it’s a great show, and very well recorded but wasn’t so good for folks who actually attended. the rté announcer comments on the “truly tragic quality of the sound”.  and when i [Read more…]
