Freddie Hubbard’s recording debut announced the arrival of an extraordinary trumpeter, both technically and artistically. This album teamed him with tenor saxophonist / composer Tina Brooks (they would reconvene a week later to record Brooks’ “True Blue”) and pianist McCoy Tyner a few months before he joined John Coltrane’s quintet. This is one of those stunning Blue Note records where the musicians mesh and the tunes, arrangements and solo get as close to perfection as one can. Alternate takes of both Tina Brooks tunes are added to the original album.
