The Hubert Gallery - New York

The Hubert Gallery
1046 Madison Avenue, New York, NY

If you're lucky enough to be able to afford shopping on Madison Avenue, or just strolling by, there's a quick and refreshing art break to be had in the Hubert Gallery.

You'll have to buzz to get them the open door, and make no mistake, this place is focused on sales of its impressive collection of contemporary original art and modern masters in lithograph and prints, but the elegant ladies who preside over the small rooms of treasure will let you walk around for a bit and browse.

Their collection of Modern Masters includes the likes of Marc Chagall,


Henri Matisse (what someone can do with just line!)


and Picasso


among others, such as Francis Bacon, Georges Braque, Alexander Calder, Raoul Dufy, Alberto Giacometti, David Hockney, Fernand Léger, Joan Mirò, Gino Severini & Tom Wesselmann.

Contemporary artists include Paul Chojnowski, Ben Freeman, Linda Holt, Manuel Hughes, Hyena, Geoffrey Johnson, Louise Lawton, Robert Mars, B. Narduzzi Rex, Melody Postma, Shelly Safir, Janos Schaab, Jeff Schaller, Michael Scott & Manolo Valdès.

So buy if you can, but also stop and enjoy, and here's another thing I couldn't help but notice - even if you can't afford more than window shopping when it comes to Madison Avenue fashions, La Maison du Chocolat is only a few doors down.

With tight musicians and intriguing lyrics, Happy Freuds delivers high energy guitar rock with stylistic flair on Echo Of Sounds, their debut release. Produced with a minimum of overdubs or fixes, the album consists of a mix of original material, rearrangements of works from others and selected, less known, classic rock.

A kinetic rhythm section is the bones of the music, offering interesting patterns that augment sometimes unexpected harmonic changes. It's brainy rock, in other words, meant for music lovers who can appreciate the quality. Teo's vocals are raspy and expressive, growly when necessary - perfect for the musical mode. Teo also covers lead guitar, adapt at ear worm leads, with a tone that can be clean or dirty as required

Their sound ranges from straight up hard rock in tracks like The Mountain to the pop-flavoured acoustic Background Noise and folky To …
