Rest in Peace Freddie!

Science dropped by Martini & Jopparelli. Jan-08-2009

As most of you already know, Freddie Hubbard has passed away some days ago (Dec. 29), in the Sherman Oaks district of LA, where he was hospitated since he had a heart attack on Nov. 26. As everybody here at Martini&Jopparelli’s site use to love his music, we’d like to commemorate him in the only way we could do…re-uploading “First Light” album.

You can also listen to “Red Clay”, I’ve decided to share it with you cause there’s a strong funk sound throughout the album and that is a sound Mr. Hubbard would move more towards as the decade progressed.

The title track is a beautiful piece of music with Mr. Hubbard and saxophonist Joe Henderson perfectly melding their instruments together over the top of a slithering electric piano riff from Herbie Hancock.

We’ll miss you Freddie, rest in peace.
