"I Highly recommend this Disc to any young trumpet player looking to start a jazz collection. No one can match up to Freddie Hubbard, I got this CD 2 years ago and it rarely leaves my disc changer. This is a well rounded album displaying a full spectrum of Hubbard's raw talent and ground breaking sounds. Also to the Hip-hop enthusiast, listen to the first song(Red Clay), you will find that this melody is sampled on A Tribe Called Quest's 1993 "Midnight Mauraders.""
Maybe Not Quite the Best

"Back in the day -- the 1970's -- Freddie Hubbard was my second favorite jazz trumpet player, after Maynard Ferguson. I bought this CD mainly because all my 30-yer-old cassette tapes are starting to fall apart. While this CD certainly showcases the talent of Freddie Hubbard, it doesn't show his "best." As in the case of many "greatest hits" albums, it leaves you with a lingering question -- Who is the wiseguy that picked these particular songs? Still, I give it 4 stars just because Freddie Hubbard plays such a great horn. Jazz hasn't been the same since Kenny G and all the other " soft" or "smooth" jazz artists hit town."
