Terrific jazz album
G. Sawaged | Canada | 12/07/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is a 1997 remastered reissue of the original album and sounds wonderful. Freddie Hubbard was one of the great jazz trumpeters of all time, and this album marked his come-back to the jazz arena after a try at the pop market didn't give him any sucess. And he couldn't have chosen anyone better with which to record. Oscar Peterson and his quartet are inspiring, and Freddie Hubbard pulls off an exceptional performance. This album has got to be among his best work."
One of Hubbard's Best

"I've followed the career of Freddie Hubbard since he was a sideman with Art Blakey in the '60's. He is in top form on the first and only recording he's ever done with Oscar Peterson. Freddie is one of the most influential artists on his instrument and his fiery playing on this recording is testiment to why. Although I don't what made reviewer "Gillian" think that Freddie's commercial recordings were unsuccessful, that was far from the truth. I worked for Columbia Records in the '70's as the national director of sales and I can personally attest to the number of records that Freddie Hubbard sold during those years. His first Columbia release, "High Enengy" sold over 700,000 copies which was unheard of for a commercial jazz recording. Freddie is one of those artists where his own artistry get's to people no matter what genre he plays. Face To Face is just another example of that artistry every jazz lover should own."
All the luxury you'd expect from a quality duo!

"I'm speechless. This is probably the best jazz album I've ever heard. A superb blend of styles within a five-song ep strongly supported by two of the best legendary performers in jazz history. Enough said. It's a must have in any serious jazz collection."
