Freddie Hubbard - The Body & The Soul / SACD
The second of trumpeter Freddie Hubbard's two
Impulse albums features the 25-year old in three separate settings. He
is heard along with a tenor-saxophonist backed by strings ("Skylark," "I
Got It Bad" and "Chocolate Shake" are all given beautiful treatments),
with a 16-piece band and in a septet with Eric Dolphy and Wayne Shorter.
This well-rounded and highly recommended showcase shows why Freddie
Hubbard was considered the top trumpeter to emerge during the early
Mastered by Kevin Gray.
