House of Hard Bop

fri 29 jan 2021
Theme: Jazz

In February and March, Bop drummer and programme maker Eric Ineke focusses on the duo Hank Mobley (tenor) and Freedie Hubbard (trumpet). Both wind players from Blue Note Records made a series of recordings. Most of those in the studio of the famous sound engineer Rudy van Gelder. On some albums, they are both leading. Goin’Up (1960) and Blue Spirits (1966) are on Hubbard’s name, while Mobley is leading The Turnaround, and Roll Call (1961). Concerning the drummers – with a nod to the programme maker – , they are among the best who keep time & drive going: Art Blakey, Philly Joe Jones, Pete LaRoca, and Elvin Jones.

Bop enthusiasts; tune in!
