5.0 out of 5 stars Fearsome live jazz set., 21 July 2006
This review is from: Keystone Bop:Friday/Satur (Audio CD)
This cd presents Freddie Hubbard, Joe Henderson and Bobby Hutcherson, plus Freddie's working band on thanksgiving 1981, tearing it up on four lengthy selections. It seems that playing fusion for a decade hadn't weakened any of these musicians acoustic jazz chops, as they return to it with a renewed passion.
From the gentle piano introduction that builds intensity until the theme of One of Another Kind blasts in, you know you're in for a very special treat. Freddie has never sounded better in my opinion. Joe Henderson gets his chance to shine in Round Midnight where he pulls out some tasty licks without ever falling into cliche. Red Clay gives this band a chance to really show off their chops; its the best version I've ever heard. The rhythm section really know how to back the individual soloists, who seem to build on each other's ideas. The beautiful, flowing First Light concludes the disc, with some gorgeous interplay between Freddie and Pianist Billy Childs. Henderson, Larry Klein on bass, and Hutcherson's vibes also get magnificent encouragement from the backing players.
If you're a fan of any of these players, you like 60s Blue Note or modern jazz in general check this out.
