Format: Audio CD
This is one of the scariest records you'll ever hear.
Nothing to do with cheap horror tricks - this is well serious.
It's a colaboration, between musique concret master Ilhan Mumaroglu and jazz trumpeter Freddie Hubbard, that tackles some brutal political issues of early 70s USA. Using poetry, court testimonies, chorus singing, tape manipulation, composed and free-form jazz, we take a horror journey past the manson murders, Vietnam, the horrors of war and race.
Most of this is profoundly moving, the poetry really well complemented by the music and it all hangs heavy with a mighty sadness with the brutality of the world.
This must have really annoyed Hubbard's jazz followers who must have been horrified at the sudden change of direction he took here. But he is to be commended for his braveness - this is a record like nothing else. I only bought it in the mid 80s because the record was being sold cheap in some back alley shop in Sheffield - I've never been so confused on the first play of any other record. Glad I bought it though.

SIX SIX SIXTIES (A Neglected Masterpiece of the Avant-Garde) 30 Jun. 2011
By Ferrara Brain Pan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
After having been out of print for nearly thirty years, this classic mindblower from 1971 has at last been reissued on CD. This is much more than a 'jazz' recording by Freddie Hubbard. Quoting the original album cover, what we have here is SING ME A SONG OF SONGMY, "A Fantasy for Electromagnetic Tape, featuring Freddie Hubbard and his Quintet, with Reciters, Chorus, String Orchestra, Hammond Organ, Synthesized & Processed Sounds,Composed & Realized by ILHAN MIMAROGLU on Poems by Fazil Husnu Daglarca & Other Texts". What the CD reissue liner notes fail to emphasize is that this is really an Ilhan Mimaroglu album. Not to devalue the first-rate performances by Hubbard & his group, but calling this a Freddie Hubbard album is somewhat misleading. For those unfamiliar with the name of Ilhan Mimaroglu, he was one of the second-generation musique-concrete composers, composing electronic music by the manipulation of recording tape and early analog synthesizers, in addition to writing music for piano, voice, string quartet, etc. And this is undeniably his masterwork. A collage of scored/improvised electro-acoustic music and spoken word, it is a frightening evocation of all the political & sociocultural turmoil that was the 1960s: the Vietnam War, civil rights, student insurrections, murder, mass cultural oppression & indoctrination. The music ranges from elegiac strings and choral arrangements to free jazz (Hubbard and his group deliver some topnotch and harmonically dissonant playing) to searing electronic vortices. The texts range from Soren Kierkegaard to Che Guevara to Susan Atkins (whose grand jury testimony from the Manson Family trials is excerpted in the chilling 'Threnody for Sharon Tate'). I originally bought this record as a cut-out back around 1973, and having worn out two vinyl copies, it is a revelation to hear it now on CD. Caveat emptor for 'jazz' fans: This is 'difficult' listening, to say the least, and unless you are hip to post-Trane modal extemporizations and the more outward-reaching efforts by the likes of Eric Dolphy, Archie Shepp, and the AACM artists, you will likely be dismayed by this production.

Fusion-Jazz report 11 May 2008
By C. Weeks - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I bought this cd in order to write a report for my college jazz class. I wanted something different and really out there so I could be assured noone else would pick the same subject. This album is really, really out there. Hubbard's album is as relevant today as it was in the early 70s. It is not for casual listening.
