Hubbard’s unmistakable and influential trumpet tone was considered as one of the best American Jazz Trumpeters, besides of vigorous Clifford Brown and unrestrained Lee Morgan.

Hubbard’s journey to stardom is began, when he moved to New York in 1958 and playing with some of the best jazz players of the era, including Eric Dolphy, Phillip Joe Jones, Quincy Jones.

Two years later, in June 1960, Hubbard decided to make his first record, “Open Sesame” together with saxophonist Tina Brooks, pianist McCoy Tyner, bassist Sam Jones and drummer Clifford Jarvis.



Hubbard most refulgent moment was in 1961, when he joined Art Blakey’s “The Jazz Messengers” and collaborates with one of the greatest saxophonists in that era, Wayne Shorter.

One of the songs, “A Weaver of Dream” is absolutely smooth and relaxing. This song is best to play, especially before you go to bed…



Due to Hubbard’s exceptional talent in Trumpet, he was best described as “The Most brilliant trumpeter of a generation” He’s totally well deserved to be called as “The Grandmaster of American Jazz Trumpeter, after he accepted the NEA Jazz Masters Award in 2006.
