    Yes, so many of the good ones seem to be leaving us.

    Two of my favorite Hubbard albums are "Backlash" and "Breaking Point."

    He'll be missed.

    "Breaking Point" is excellent.

    I love his playing on Dolphy's "Out to Lunch" too.

    There are some Andrew Hill recordings on which Hubbard plays that are among my favorites.

    Wow. That's really sad news.

    I always loved the second VSOP recording. I really admired the way he came in and assumed Miles' role in that quintet and really nailed it. Wayne, Ron, Herbie and Tony were all really on too. That was a great performance/recording. Magic.

    When that generation finally dies out, so much of what has established America as truly great in 20th century music, and so much of what European and Asian musicians have long admired about our country's music will have died with them.

    We all stand on the shoulders of giants.
