Format: Audio CD
This almost-impossible-to-find fourth album in a series of eleven recorded for Blue Note between 1960 and 1966 featuring Freddie Hubbard as a leader is arguably his best of the Blue Note era. After three previous issues (also hard to find) which matched Freddie with the likes of Paul Chambers and Philly Joe Jones of Miles' camp, Hank Mobley, McCoy Tyner (piano), Julian Priester and Jimmy Heath, this was his first of his many Blue Note sessions with the emerging forces of Wayne Shorter (tenor sax), Art Davis (bass) and Elvin Jones (drums). Bernard McKinney (euphonium) is added for depth of harmony during the heads, which he provides nicely, yet his improvisational efforts did nothing to add to the luster of this album.
At a mere 23 years of age, Freddie displays an early maturity that is mysteriously absent from many of his later recordings. He is solid, confident and purposeful here, and shows leadership quality, whereas in subsequent sessions with many of the same personnel, he often digs holes from which he cannot cleanly escape. This session is solid jazz, without any of Freddie's gimmicky antics or space-filling high-note blowing. Conversely, despite the famed careers of his esteemed sidemen, none of them are at their very best, with the possible exception of Art Davis.
The quality of the recording is questionable. There's a scratchy microphone, perhaps on Elvin's cymbals, which is sometimes irritating. Nevertheless, the balance is pretty good, and Art cuts through clearly - a rare event for a bassist in these early Blue Notes.
Arietis - A smart, warmly harmonious and upbeat swing original by Freddie, who takes honors and delivers a strong, well-constructed and well-phrased solo behind the anxious provocation of McCoy, Art and Elvin.
