Freddie Hubbard dies at 70
Somehow 70 seems too early for this masterful trumpeter, known as much for his work with Ornette Coleman on Free Jazz, Eric Dolphy on Out to Lunch and John Coltrane on Ole Coltrane and Ascension (among others) as for his own recordings as an ensemble leader. (I must confess to only owning a copy of his Blue Note solo debut Open Sesame, an error I plan to rectify in the very near future.)
