I discovered this gem at the same place I discovered Sun Ra's "Cosmic Tones for Mental Therapy" and Pat Metheny's "Letter from Home" (two of my favorite jazz recordings): namely the Santa Clara Public Library. This recording has Freddie Hubbard, Joe Henderson, and Bobby Hutcherson (all jazz legends) playing so well together and backed by the hard driving rhythm section of Larry Klein, Steve Houghton, and Billy Childs. It was recorded live at the Keystone Korner in San Francisco back in 1981, and must have been quite a memorable show for anyone who attended. I must say that this recording made me fans of all six musicians, especially Bobby Hutcherson and Freddie Hubbard, who at the time may have been the most technically proficient at their instruments (vibes and trumpet respectively). My favorite tracks include "Littlest One of All", the hard driving latin-tinged "Intrepid Fox", and the smooth "Sky Dive". "Birdlike" seems like an obvious tribute to Charlie Parker.

The first album I ever purchased of Freddie Hubbard was Hubbard/ Turrentine live, on CTI. I was hooked, and have amassed over 30 records by this departed jazz legend. This album features top notch jazz masters like Bobby Hutcherson & Joe Henderson, both whom I have had the pleasure to see live at the Lighthouse in Hermosa beach back in the 1970's. I've seen Hubbard live at least 10 times, and talked to him at Dante's' Jazz club back around 1980 or so. He went through his ups and downs in his long career, but the one thing Freddie had was that growl and wail in his trumpet tone that no one has yet matched. This album shows off a peak time in his performance life, with straight ahead bop. Body and Soul, Sky Dive and the Intrepid Fox are CTI mainstays from his monster catalog of trumpet works, and Freddie and these great musicians blow the roof off.

This review also goes for the "Friday/Saturday" sister album done at the same time.

This is pure Hubbard in the later years. Now that he's gone I tend to accept his senseless screaming on the horn more than I used to. Why? He always resolved hysterical moves in a most creative way. My only real criticism of the session is the extremely poor recording quality. As I understand it, the performances were simply taped via the house PA system and were not really intended for album release. A potential gold mine of great vocal audio between songs is practically unhearable. The mikes should have been set so that between-song chatter could have been audited because doing so really would have imbued the albums with that live feel.

Notwithstanding the above, all play great and this (these) are two albums to have if you are a Freddie Hubbard fan.

Like many Jazz fans, I have enjoyed many excellent recordings by Hubbard, Henderson, and Hutcherson, et al, as leaders and as sidemen including their more celebrated and well-known sessions on Blue Note, CTI, and Columbia, etc. However, I would have to say that this set, recorded live at the Keystone Korner in 1981, is my personal favorite. I first ran across this album by chance (a beat up library-copy vinyl in a local bargain bin) many years ago issued as A Little Night Music. In addition to the veteran musicianship you would expect from the players involved, their was a special energy that they captured in this particular performance that comes through remarkably well on this recording. As others have mentioned, this must have been a very memorable evening for anyone who was there that night! I find these versions of "Sky Dive" and "Intrepid Fox" particularly captivating. When the CD became available in the 90's, I was happy to find that the CD transfer was every bit as good as the LP and to be able to enjoy the tunes without pop, scratches, skips and without having to flip the record in the middle of Joe Henderson's solo on Sky Dive. There is a companion recording of the Friday and Saturday Night sets as well. While this one, in my opinion, is the better of the two, the other also has some excellent playing and makes for an enjoyable listening experience.
