Freddie Hubbard - Amsterdam 1970

Here's another early show, an all acoustic set with Junior Cook and Kenny Barron. On bass we find Juni Booth, whom I know mostly from McCoy Tyner's bands of the seventies, and on drums is the great Louis Hayes!
Again though, this is mostly Freddie's show. He's covering it all, from hot energetic playing (Straight Life) to most lyrical sounds (Without a Song - could be a flugelhorn he's playing here, it seems... though towards the end, the harder, edgier sound comes to the fore again).

Next up will be a funky 1975 double set!

And please, let me know, I have more with Hadley Caliman and also some shows from 1980, 1982 and 1983 and then some - are you interested in those as well? The later ones go more towards straight ahead jazz again (with musicians like Joe Henderson, Lew Tabackin, JoAnne Brackeen etc, as well as a show where Dizzy Gillespie and Woody Shaw join in). Please post a comment to let me know!

His comments (now updated with full information and new track times, above) :
Whoever recorded this didn't want any of the anouncer on it as he cuts him off so I have no idea re:
personnel or tune titles.
This is for Brimouse.

Enjoy, Bill D.
