'''Frederick Dewayne Hubbard''' ([[
7 de abril]] de [[ 1938]], [[ Indianápolis]] , [[ Indiana]]) é um [[trompete|trompetista]] de [[jazz]] [[Estados Unidos da América|estadunidense]].
Na juventude, Hubbard associou-se a vários músicos em Indianápolis, dentre eles [[Wes Montgomery]] e seus irmãos. [[Chet Baker]] foi uma de suas primeiras influências, embora Hubbard tenha logo se alinhado à abordagem de [[Clifford Brown]] (e, claramente, [[Fats Navarro]] e [[Dizzy Gillespie]]).
Hubbard ingressou mais seriamente no jazz após mudar-se para [[Nova Iorque]] em 1958. Ali, trabalhou com [[Sonny Rollins]], [[Slide Hampton]], [[J. J. Johnson]], [[Bill Evans]], [[Philly Joe Jones]], [[Oliver Nelson]] e [[Quincy Jones]], além de outros
. Tornou-se conhecido ao He gained attention while playing with the seminal [[hard bop]] ensemble [[Art Blakey]] and the [[Jazz Messengers]], appearing on such albums as ''Mosaic'', ''Buhaina's Delight'', and ''Free For All''. He left the Messengers in 1964 to lead his own groups and since that time has maintained a high profile as a bandleader or featured as a special guest, but never merely a sideman.
Along with two other trumpeters also born in 1938, [[Lee Morgan]] (d. 1972) and [[Booker Little]] (d. 1961), Hubbard exerted a strong force on the direction of 1960s jazz. He recorded extensively for [[Blue Note Records]]: eight albums as a bandleader, and twenty-eight as a sideman. [http://www.danmillerjazz.com/hubbard.html] Most of these recordings are regarded as classics. Hubbard can be heard as a sideman on such classic albums such as ''[[Speak No Evil]]'' by [[Wayne Shorter]] and ''[[Maiden Voyage]]'' by [[Herbie Hancock]]. Hubbard appeared on a few early [[avant-garde]] landmarks (Ornette Coleman's ''[[Free Jazz: A Collective Improvisation|Free Jazz]]'', [[Eric Dolphy]]'s ''[[Out to Lunch (album)|Out to Lunch]]'' and [[John Coltrane]]'s ''[[Ascension (album)|Ascension]]''), but Hubbard never fully embraced free jazz, though it has influenced his playing.
After leaving Blue Note, Hubbard recorded for the Atlantic label and moved toward a more commercial style. His next label was [[CTI Records]] where he recorded his best-known works, ''Red Clay'', ''First Light'', and ''Sky Dive''. By 1970, his fiery, melodic improvisation and phenomenal technique established him as perhaps the leading trumpeter of his day, but a series of commercially oriented [[smooth jazz]] albums gave rise to some negative criticism, and his emotional instability on the bandstand became a problem. (A famous recording of Hubbard playing with Blakey in Europe features the trumpeter shouting at the audience, cursing, weeping, and leaving the stage.) After signing with [[Columbia Records]], Hubbard's albums were almost exclusively in a commercial vein. However, in 1976, Hubbard toured and recorded with V.S.O.P., led by [[Herbie Hancock]] which presented jazz in the style of the 1960s Miles Davis Quintet (with Hubbard taking the place of Davis).
1980s projects moved between straight-ahead and commercial styles, and Hubbard recorded for several different labels including Sweet Return by [[Joan Cartwright]] on Atlantic, Pablo, Fantasy, Elektra/Musician, and the revived Blue Note label. The slightly younger [[Woody Shaw]] was Hubbard's main jazz competitor during the 1970s and 1980s, and the two eventually recorded together on three occasions. Hubbard participated in the short-lived Griffith Park Collective, which also included [[Joe Henderson]], [[Chick Corea]], [[Stanley Clarke]], and [[Lenny White]].
''Breaking Point'' (
Following a long setback of health problems and a serious lip injury in 1992, Hubbard is again playing and recording occasionally, but not at the high level that he set for himself during his earlier career.
