For his second recording as a leader, trumpeter Freddie Hubbard (22 years old at the time) performs two compositions apiece by Kenny Dorham and Hank Mobley, the obscure "I Wished I Knew," and his own "Blues for Brenda." Hubbard (featured in a quintet with tenor saxophonist Mobley, pianist McCoy Tyner, bassist Paul Chambers, and drummer Philly Joe Jones) takes quite a few outstanding solos, playing lyrically on the ballads and building his own sound out of the Clifford Brown/Lee Morgan tradition.
