Freddie Hubbard

I'm talking a lot about atmosphere in the espresso bar.
Maybe it's time for people to rethink their music - probably the most important piece of the puzzle.

Freddie Hubbard is my favourite trumpeteer - oh man he can blow the horn.
See him live with the Art Blakey Jazz Messengers.

Later on he took over Miles Davis his band in the 60's recordings massive tracks for Blue Note.
Most of this stuff is probably the best for your bar.
Check 'Open Sesame'. Epic!*

Then he moved on to the CTI house build by Creed Taylor.
This first part of the 70's is my favourite Freddie period.
First Light and Red Clay. Oh my.

Later on the 70's he did some weird shit, but kept on playing well. Early 80's his technique was still there, but due to depressions and age he then quickly lost it.
Last year he died, but at Caffenation he's still alive, almost every day.
