Breaking With Blue Note Past, Trumpeter Hubbard Unveils What's Arguably His Masterpiece

Splendid Sonics: Mastered from the Original Master Tapes

As the label’s first release, Red Clay established the soul-funk template Creed Taylor’s CTI imprint would follow for the next decade. Joined by the likes of Herbie Hancock, Joe Henderson, and others, Freddie Hubbard lays down bluesy hard-bop epiphanies, turning in his most memorable work as a leader.

In addition to standing as a career-defining affair, the 1970 effort also marks Hubbard's break from his Blue Note era and signals the fusion-minded direction he and other players would further investigate in the years to come. The cover of John Lennon's "Cold Turkey" is alone worth the price of admission.

On this fabulous pressing, mastered from the original tapes with utmost care, the sonic intricacies of the knotty architecture comes to fore. The results are ravishing, each note memorable. Credit ORG Music for reaching beyond the '50s and '60s and beginning to mine the rich well of the 1970s for jazz treasures for audiophile enjoyment.
