CD Reviews

Windjammer
Ronald L. Estus | Little Rock, Ar United States | 07/09/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This cd fits well with todays smooth jazz format and the different categories of jazz. Hubbard's career took a bad hit after making LPs like this one. Guess this music was a little ahead of it's time."
This Record deserves its Props

"Did alot of research of this album that Freddie put out in the '70s and to this day remains one of the ultimate jazz funk albums he ever dropped. Its vibe, energy, flavor and creativity all match through this entire album produced by Bob James (who else performs on this album). Look at the buttered funk he laid out on Morris Albert's "Feelings" with much tender to it coming from the flutes, the reeds, the strings and the rhythm section altogether. There's the real swing with "Touch Me Baby", "Dream Weaver", and "Neo Terra" coming up with that nasty disco funk. A shame why Jazz critics and fans alike were dissatisfied or shunned about this unforgotten gem. Why? Prove them wrong, it's remains a great classic and it's the best.

Now it's made its CD Re-issue debut, we're joyed to feel the ultimate art this mad trumpeter left us. He was one of a kind. There's nothing else that will replace or take away from this album. Even if you're a hip-hop fan, a lover of music, or devotee to a jambalaya of funk, fusion, jazz, r&b, disco and latin, I suggest you give this album a chance. Others like Super Blue,High Energy, Love Connection, Red Clay, Ride Like the Wind gives its props to every Freddie Hubbard collector."
