everybodydigs#140 Freddie Hubbard – Here To Stay

everybodydigs# is a series of posts about Jazz, Funk, Soul & R’n’b albums released from the 20s to the 90s, you can read a brief description/review and listen to a small preview (when it’s possible). everybodydigs# is like when someone tells you “hey you should listen to this album!” and nothing less, enjoy!

This two-LP set, which was released in 1979 as part of United Artists’ Blue Note reissue series, brought back trumpeter Freddie Hubbard’s early album Hub Cap, a sextet session with tenor-saxophonist Jimmy Heath, trombonist Julian Priester, and pianist Cedar Walton. Although that session (comprised of four Hubbard compositions, one of Walton’s songs, and Randy Weston’s “Cry Me Not”) is excellent, it is the full album of previously unreleased material from an all-star quintet that is of greatest interest. Hubbard teams up with fellow Jazz Messengers Wayne Shorter (on tenor), Walton, bassist Reggie Workman, and (in Blakey’s spot) drummer Philly Joe Jones for some advanced hard bop. Highpoints include the fiery “Philly Mignon” and a strong version of “Body and Soul.” (allmusic)

Tenor-saxophonist Wayne Shorter’s Blue Note debut found him well prepared to enter the big time. With an impressive quintet that includes trumpeter Lee Morgan, pianist McCoy Tyner, bassist Reggie Workman and drummer Elvin Jones, Shorter performed a well-rounded program consisting of five of his originals plus an adaptation of an “Oriental Folk Song.” Whether it be the brooding title cut, the Coltranish ballad “Virgo” or the jams on “Black Nile” and “Charcoal Blues,” this is a memorable set of high-quality and still fresh music. (allmusic).
