Freddie Hubbard left an indelible mark on jazz in a variety of idioms including those that were high art and others than were more commercial in focus. His Blue Note and later CTI years were some of his most prolific yet there were sessions that were not released for many years after their recording. This hour opens with one of those sessions that was allowed to simmer in the vaults for several years before its ultimate release.

We follow with classic Kenny Burrell, a cool electric innovator in his times, and then Jane Ira Bloom, an electronic innovator in her formative years, followed by Marcus Robert innovating at the solo piano.

The next set is a collection of fun tunes and talks with Poncho giving us some very worthy Latin Jazz, Robert Klein delivers a funny yet mostly accurate guide to music, and The Microscopic Septet parties with the best of them.

Pat Metheny scales the heights while Stan Kenton gives chase and Johnny Adams ensures that it will never happen again. And rounding out the hour Freddie Hubbart speaks some musical plain truth to all of us.
