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!
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 late 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.
Personnel: Freddie Hubbard (trumpet); James Spaulding (alto saxophone, flute); Reginald Workman (bass); Herbie Hancock (piano); Clifford Jarvis (drums).
