Freddie Hubbard - Wiesen 1982

Here's the next one, by an astonishing band: Freddie of course, with Joe Henderson, Tony Williams, Kenny Barron and Ron Carter!

There'll be a second show from this July 1982 tour, said to be from Montreux, but alas, the Montreux Jazz Database does not have an entry for Freddie that year. This one is in better sound as it comes from radio, while the Montreux show is an audience recording. Both are very much worth being heard! We get Freddie digging deep into straight ahead jazz again, after years of doing funky music, and after what I'm afraid were some pretty drab and commercial albums. Luckily, that side hardly comes to the fore in the live shows I'm sharing here, though!

Please help identifying #2 if you recognise it!
