Freddie Hubbard solo on a Jazz standard – Joy Spring
It was nice to hear Freddie Hubbard’s rendition of Joy Spring by Clifford Brown. I never heard him take a ride on this tune. Freddie Hubbard definitely does a great job of adding his unique Jazz style to the tune.
One thing I’ve always noticed about Freddie Hubbard is that he likes to takes really long trumpet solos. That’s cool with me, he definitely had the chops for it back in the day, if you know what I mean. I really wish Freddie Hubbard was still alive and soloing all over the place so I can get even more Jazz licks from him.
If you know the chord changes to Joy Spring, there are a whole bunch of great Jazz licks you can get from this solo. I’m going to go through the Jazz solo and see what I can steal myself.
