One of the finest trumpeters in jazz, Freddie Hubbard, recorded live at the legendary Hamburg venue Onkel Pö's Carnegie Hall in 1978.
The album 'The Love Connection' had just been released and its title song also starts off this live recording. Hubbard's band adopted some aspects of Blakey's "Messengers" strategy. By featuring young up-and-coming musicians, such as saxophonist Hadley Caliman, the then 23-year-old bassist Larry Klein - who would later work as a producer and accompanied songwriters such as Randy Newman or Joni Mitchell (he was even married to Joni for a while!). Plus the drummer Carl Burnett, and above all, the pianist Billy Childs performed brilliantly that evening at Onkel Pö - amazingly he was only 22 years old.
