Straight Life features an all-star group that includes tenor saxophonist Joe Henderson, keyboardist Herbie Hancock, guitarist George Benson, bassist Ron Carter, and drummer Jack DeJohnette. Recorded in 1970 between Hubbard's better-known CTI releases, Red Clay and First Light, the album was also engineered by Rudy Van Gelder and produced by Creed Taylor.
This 180-gram audiophile-grade vinyl reissue, which was mastered from original tapes by Bernie Grundman and pressed at Pallas in Germany, shines new light on this amazing, underrated recording.
