CD reissue of this 1979 album from the late Jazz trumpeter. Freddie Hubbard was one of the premier trumpet players in all of Jazz. He issued a wealth of albums from the 1960s until his passing at the end of 2008. Many of his albums have made the Billboard top LP chart, a rare occasion for a Jazz artist. Wounded Bird. 2009.

Very glad to see it finally reissued on CD after all these years!

I especially love the ballad "Brigette" which is straight ahead jazz but at the same time just breathtakingly beautiful music that any music lover would dig.

I orginally bought this LP back when it was first released, being a young trumpet player wanting to discover the jazz styles of the great Freddie Hubbard. I was already a Hubbard fan, but what struck me about me about this album were the incredibly unique and beautiful string arrangements by Claus Ogerman that are the framework and setting for most of what happens on this recording. The album also features the finest ever version of "Little Sunflower", featuring Al Jarreau on vocals.
Most of the album is very reflective and ethereal, but Ogerman's arrangemnts are the star here, transporting you to someplace you've not visited before if you've never heard him. Hubbard's mostly fluegelhorn solos are a perfect guide to this other world, and a perfect mesh with the arrangements.
I have been avidly, desparately looking for this recording to come out on CD forever, and now my wishes have been answered at last. This album influenced me so much musically I would just about pay any price for this pristine recording! This will be in short-list of most precious CD's I own.

I have been looking for this recording of Al Jarreau singing little sunflower for decades. Still have the lp somewhere. I agree this was one of Hubbard's best...but am I the only one that is looking the obscure but exceptional lp recording called "Touch" ? Another gem I have yet to uncover.

Stunning much underated playing from master trumpet/flugelhorn player Freddie Hubbard during his fusion years.wounded bird records are doing a great job re-releasing these master sessions as they did with Maynard Ferguson,Bill Chase,Don Ellis and now also due in november Doc Severinsen too.These recordings are essential listening and is pure trumpet playing heaven

I bought this album when it was orginally released back in 1978 & it's been my favorite album from Freddie Hubbard ever since. Very glad to see it finally reissued on CD after all these years!

I would have to go on record as saying that this is one of Freddie's finest recordings. I'm so glad that it made its way to cd, finally. Even though I got it as an import, at least that's a start.
