Freddie Hubbard

Freddie Hubbard (April 7, 1938 — Dec. 27, 2008) was an American jazz trumpeter from Indianapolis.


Freddie was born Frederick Dwayne Hubbard on April 7, 1938, in Indianapolis. He first performed mellophone and trumpet in his high school band and later attended the Arthur Jordan Conservatory of Music, where he studied under trumpeter Max Woodbury of the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra.

In 1958, Hubbard notched his first recorded backing credit on the album And 5 Others by the Montgomery Brothers (Wes and Monk), followed in 1959 by an appearance (alongside saxist Cannonball Adderley) on the Vee Jay Records release Go by double-bassist Paul Chambers.
