Trombonist Leo Gauna conceived of The Hubtones as a special project to celebrate some of his favorite jazz artists, including Freddie Hubbard, Horace Silver, Wayne Shorter, and The Jazz Messengers. The vibe of the group is bluesy and soulful—the kind of jazz tunes that make you snap your fingers and move your hips. In the spirit of innovation and improvising something authentic and spirited, Gauna is “thrilled to have some of my closest friends who I have been playing music with since college on this project.”
