Freddie Hubbard/Ilhan Mimaroglu: Song of Songmy
Crazy record that probably scared Freddie Hubbard fans with it’s extreme Avant Garde-ness. Yet, does not seem to be super well known among Avant Garde enthusiasts – probably because it’s credited to Hubbard and was released on Atlantic. But, this is every bit as ruthlessly experimental as anything I’ve heard on any fringe Classical label. The whole thing is equal parts Chamber Music, Electronics, and Jazz – as you will hear in this excerpt from the track “Threnody For Sharon Tate”.
