Freddie Hubbard - Montreux 1983

More stellar straight ahead jazz from Freddie's 80s revival period! And look what a band he is with here! The great Lew Tabackin on sax and flute, Joanne Brackeen on piano, and a true all-star rhythm section of Charlie Haden and Billy Cobham (what a weird combination - but it works!)

Hope you still enjoy these - there haven't been many comments of late... I'd still be very happy about any hints regarding the musicians and location of the previous 1983 upload!

As you say its very unusual to see such a line-up..Guess it's one of the pleasures of a festival band: Whoever's on-hand gets the gig..Certainly not one of Freddie's working/recording groups that I've come across..Many thanks for the post.

I know I'm a few years late to this party, but... does anyone know if that video is still available? I've been scouring the internet and can't seem to find it anywhere! I can't even find a copy of that concert to purchase. It would be a real shame for that performance to become a lost artifact. Any help would be VERY MUCH appreciated!
