An Interview with Freddie Hubbard



Twenty-some years ago, Ben Sidran was asked by National Public Radio to interview jazz musicians for a show called Sidran On Record. The pieces, recorded between 1984 and 1990, were taped in New York and were unscripted, free-ranging conversations between Sidran and musicians or other people involved with jazz. The interviews reveal themselves on a variety of levels: Sidran acts as interviewer plus fellow musician, fan and record collector. Non-playing fans can easily identify with Sidran, because he emotes a mutual enthusiasm, but he also brings along the perspective of a musician who has shared the experience of trying, at the end of the night, to get paid for a gig.
This episode features Sidran interviewing trumpet master/jazz legend Freddie Hubbard.
