Freddie Hubbard

Straight Life from 1975 by Freddie Hubbard. In addition to releasing many great records over the decades under his own name (including gem after gem on Blue Note), he appeared on some of the most pivotal jazz albums in history: Ascension by John Coltrane, Free Jazz by Ornette Coleman, Blues And The Abstract Truth by Oliver Nelson, and Out To Lunch by Eric Dolphy to name a few. And while the NYT obit claims his standing in the jazz world was diminished in the 70s, his recordings for CTI and Columbia in that decade are now rightfully revered.
