Freddie Hubbard with Art Blakey’s Jazz Messengers

Hubbard: April 7, 1938 – December 29, 2008

Written by Bobby Timmons, and first recorded by this group in 1958, “Moanin’” has since become a jazz standard. Off an album with the same name, the song is featured here in a 1962 performance recording.

A year before this tape, Freddie Hubbard — just 24 years old during this performance — had replaced Lee Morgan on trumpet for the Jazz Messengers.
