Freddie Hubbard - Comacchio 1984

So boisterous grandiloquent Freddie and his black a** have been dead for quite a while now... needless to say he is missed! But then he was missed already during the last years of his lifetime. Here's the longer of two circulating sources (not sure how sound compares) of an all star concert with a mighty fine band that comes as a nice addition to the lengthy tribute I did for him early last year.

Thanks to to "trane" for sharing this over on dime!

Comacchio (Italy), Piazzetta Trepponti
July 8, 1984

I caught an appearance by Freddie in Seattle in the late '90s. It was a low point, the band covered for him because he had no lip to play with. His decline was so saddening. Nice to hear this set. Thanks.
