5.0 out of 5 stars Tina cooks, Hubbard shines and Taylor sweeps up 24 Mar 2005
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
With it's colour chart cover, this Blue Note album is every inch a classic. The leader, whose real name was Harold, (Tina being a corruption of his nickname, Teeny) possessed a strong tone, not unlike Booker Erwin. On this evidence, I would rate even higher than Hank Mobely. This was the ony Blue Note album issued under his name during his lifetime and he died in obscurity in 1972.
The line-up features a very young Freddue Hubbard, full of confidence and forming a magical partnership with the tenor man, one of the best front lines that I have heard on this label. As a composer, Brooks had the gift of composing catchy tunes - not unlike labelmate Sonny Clark. The best two tracks are "Theme for Doris" and "Miss Hazel." Most of the material is in the typical Blue Note style, although Brooks favoured minor keys and there are frequently 8 bar sections with a latin rythmn. The only standard is the unknown "Nothing ever changes.." - this two being well arranged. Underneath it all, the band is underpinned by the wonderful drumming of Art Taylor, one of the neglected masters of his instrument and never less than excellent.
All in all, this is a fantastic CD , even by the standards of Blue Note and I would recommend this disc to all fans of 1960's hard bop. Absolutely fantstic.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sadly Neglected 16 Nov 2007
By Jascot
Format:Audio CD
Please, please get hold of anything featuring Tina Brookes. Whatever the reasons for his meagre(vis-a-vis his remarkable talent as musician and composer) recorded output, that which exists is to be treasured. Track him down relentlessly as leader or band member.On this album Freddie Hubbard superb. Cf. compliment returned on Hubbard's "Open Sesame"

5.0 out of 5 stars Tina Brooks' BLUE NOTE classic from 1960. 1 Nov 2012
By Jazzrook TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
This excellent RVG remastered edition(2005) features the underrated tenor saxophonist Tina Brooks(1932-1974). It was recorded in New Jersey on June 25, 1960 with a superb quintet including Freddie Hubbard(trumpet), Duke Jordan(piano), Sam Jones(bass) & Art Taylor(drums).
The six varied tracks(plus two alternative takes) comprise five originals by Brooks and an impressive version of 'Nothing Ever Changes My Love For You'.
'True Blue' is probably the most easily available of all Tina Brooks' albums and is essential listening for anyone who appreciates soulful hard bop.
