    Freddie Hubbard

    Freddie hubbard died on December 29th from complications after a heart attack.  He was 70.  As the world mourns the loss of the phenomenal musician, radio stations that stretch the globe -- including WBGO -- celebrate his memory.  If you missed our special Freddie Hubbard hour broadcast -- with drummer Kenny Washington, pianist Cedar Walton, trumpeters David Weiss and Roy Hargrove -- you can click here to listen on-demand.  You won't be disappointed.  It features two exclusive WBGO interviews with the trumpet master, including his very last media date with WBGO's Awilda Rivera. - Simon Rentner
