Hubbard will perform with Sacramento State jazz faculty at 8 p.m., Friday, Feb. 18 in the University Union Ballroom. Tickets are $15 general and $5 for students.

Hubbard will also give a free talk at 7 p.m., Wednesday, Feb. 16 in the University Union’s Redwood Room. KXTV Channel 10 reporter Karen Massie will lead a discussion with the musician that will include answering audience questions. Hubbard will also give a master class at 1:30 p.m., Thursday, Feb. 17 in the Music Recital Hall.

His appearances are part of the University’s Black History Month celebration of African American accomplishments.
Prominent as a leader and sideman in bebop and hard bop, Hubbard also was comfortable with more avant-garde sounds and played on John Coltrane’s master recording Ascension.

Hubbard’s albums as a leader include Open Sesame, which he recorded on the premiere Blue Note record label when he was only 22. Other recordings include the albums Goin’ Up, Hub Cap and arguably his best album, Ready for Freddie.

Hubbard was a sideman to some of jazz’s most recognizable musicians including Bill Evans, Herbie Hancock, Hank Mobley, Dexter Gordon and Wayne Shorter. He also played with Art Blakey and the Jazz Messengers.

Financial support for this concert was provided by the California Faculty Association.
