In the pantheon of jazz trumpeters, Indianapolis native Freddie Hubbard stands as one of the boldest and most inventive artists of the bop, hard-bop and post-bop eras. Although influenced by titans like Miles Davis and Clifford Brown, Hubbard ultimately forged his own unique sound — a careful balance of bravado and subtlety that fueled more than 50 solo recordings. UIndy director of Jazz Studies Mark O’Connor and his quartet celebrate Hubbard’s most well-known compositions.
