Freddie Hubbard (1938-2008)

The first time I ever encountered 'Red Clay' was through a cover version by the Solsonics. Years later, I discovered the Freddie Hubbard original in my campus radio station library and dug that version even more.
The badass and slinky 12-minute jam "Red Clay" was the very first tune I played when I was a college radio DJ.

Undercover Black Man has posted some musical highlights from the veteran trumpeter's career.
