Freddie Hubbard - Hamburg 1979 (featuring Leon Thomas)

This is the final Freddie show from the 70s. The opening number is by the quintet - again with Hadley Caliman (he can be heard on the Montreux 1978 post as well), and the rhythm section of Billy Childs, Larry Klein and Carl Burnett (who are on the Montreux show, as well as on the upcoming 1980 show from Boston).

Then for most of disc one, guest Leon Thomas takes over the spotlight, mostly just accompanied by the rhythm section. On some songs, Caliman and/or Hubbard join in.

On disc two, we get to hear the quintet again. I only noticed the discussion about #5 being another version of "Love Connection" after my files were up on RS. I haven't had the time to compare myself though, so let me know please!

To those interested in the details Larry Klein plays electric bass throughout this concert..This is definately worth a listen..Even if,like me, your tastes on the bass are of the more acoustic-kind..This really sounds like a working band..The way they explore 'Little Sunflower' is awesome..Once again many thanks for all the Freddie posts.
