Freddie Hubbard was a respected jazz trumpeter who was one of the leading players of the bop, be-bop and post-bop styles that became popular in the 1960s. Besides having his own celebrated albums on Blue Note and CTI Records, Hubbard played on classic recordings by the likes of Eric Dolphy, John Coltrane, Ornette Coleman, and Herbie Hancock. He won a Grammy for his 1972 release, First Light and continued to perform and record well into the ’90s. Freddie Hubbard was 70 when, on December 29, 2008, he died of complications from a heart attack he had suffered the previous month.
