Already the most formidable new trumpeter in jazz in 1962, Freddie Hubbard came into his own as a composer with this album with great originals that range from the complex, ferocious swinger "Hub-Tones" to his poignant "Lament For Booker," written for the later Booker Little. James Spaulding, Herbie Hancock, Reggie Workman and Clifford Jarvis are all at their peak, bringing the brilliant music to life with artistry and feeling.

The Album was first issued in 1963. The recording being helmed by Rudy Van Gelder.

This SACD was released in 2011. Mastered for SACD by Kevin Gray & Steve Hoffman. Authored for SACD by Gus Skinas.

The disk also has three alternate takes of tracks from the album appended.

Artistically there is nothing to scare the horses here and the title is one of Freddie's better efforts. A very enjoyable, relaxing album.

Sonically it's also pretty good. It has a very left right stereo presentation though. It is a RVG recording after all.
