Originally released in 1967, BACKLASH shows a young Freddie Hubbard beginning his explorations outside the confines of straight-ahead jazz. The tunes here have a rock-soul flavor and show Hubbard absorbing all that was in the air at that moment. The title track, penned by Donald Picket, easily rolls over the seductive groove laid down by drummer Otis Ray Appleton and showcases Hubbard's shining tone and the fine playing of his old friend, alto saxophonist James Spaulding.
As always, the influence of Clifford Brown is evident in Hubbard's playing, but there is also the echo of Lee Morgan's trumpet work on the classic '60s recording SIDEWINDER. On several cuts, including "Backlash" and, most notably, "Little Sunflower," the subtle percussion of Ray Barretto adds polish to the sweet Latin sheen. That latter track also benefits from Spaulding's delicate flute work. Pianist Albert Daily and bassist Bob Cunningham round out the rhythm section.
