Straight Life is a soul/funk influenced jazz album recorded in 1970 by trumpeter Freddie Hubbard. Hubbard is joined here by an all-star group including Joe Henderson, Herbie Hancock, George Benson, Ron Carter, Jack DeJohnette and more!

Recorded between trumpeter Freddie Hubbard's better-known classics Red Clay and First Light, Straight Life is actually arguably Hubbard's greatest recording. Hubbard, joined by an all-star group that includes tenor saxophonist Joe Henderson, keyboardist Herbie Hancock, guitarist George Benson, bassist Ron Carter, and drummer Jack DeJohnette, is frequently astounding on "Straight Life" (check out that introduction) and "Mr. Clean," constructing classic solos. The very memorable set is rounded off by the trumpeter's duet with Benson on a lyrical version of the ballad "Here's That Rainy Day." This exciting album is essential for all serious jazz collections.

This release was produced, engineered, and mastered by Creed Taylor. It was recorded at Van Gelder Studios on November 16, 1970.
