Good - Hubbard nails it.

I thought that someone ought to add a buyer's review for this superb 1970's classic. As the blurb on Spotify puts it : "This exciting CD is essential for all serious jazz collections". Too true.

From the soul/funk on "Mr Clean" to the emotionally convincing playing on tracks like "Here's That Rainy Day", Hubbard's sometimes seemingly "cocky" style never feels out of place on this album . The lineup alone ought make it at least an interesting exploratory voyage. But of course "Straight Life" is worthy of much deeper attention than only because of the illustrious array of musicians which CTI managed to gather together in the 1970's. The end product justifies the means and Freddie Hubbard leads the set with admirable creativity.

Freddie Hubbard: trumpet/flugelhorn; Joe Henderson: tenor saxophone; George Benson: guitar; Herbie Hancock: electric piano; Ron Carter: bass; Jack DeJohnette: drums; Richie Landrum: percussion; Weldon Irvine: tambourine.

Played in a band called Mr.Clean, and it was all about this composition, and Freddie nails it on this album.
