Freddie Hubbard - Berlin 1985 & Nürnberg 1986

This is a double feature of Freddie Hubbard's - two more shows to come after that, and then I'm done with my little homage to Freddie. As I'm typing, "Hub-Tones" is on, and it strikes me how lyrical Hubbard often played on his early albums (I've played "Open Sesame", "Goin' Up" and the great "Hub-Cap" before this morning).

Anyway, the first show here is a bit longer than one disc, and the second hasn't got great sound (it's very hissy), so I figured those interested in both might as well just put the 1986 onto the second disc of the 1985 show... in these times of crisis, a saved CDR is... well, as saved CDR!

The first of the shows from 1985's JazzFest Berlin features Hubbard along with Kenny Garrett (to play with Miles Davis soon after), and a rhythm section of Donald Brown, Ira Coleman and Carl Allen. The highlights are provided two fellow trumpet players sitting in: Woody Shaw and Dizzy Gillespie! Quite some trumpet fireworks!

The second show, from Nuremberg's Ost-West Jazz Festival, features Hubbard along Joe Henderson and the McCoy Tyner trio (with Avery Sharpe and Louis Hayes). As I said, that recording is hissy and inconsistent, but you'll have to check it out yourself.
