Personnel: Freddie Hubbard (trumpet); Harold Land (tenor saxophone); Billy Childs (keyboards); Larry Klein (bass); Steve Houghton (drums); Buck Clark (percussion).
Recorded at Ocean Way Recording Studio, Hollywood, California on December 14, 1981.
Digitally remastered by Phil De Lancie (1992, Fantasy Studios, Berkeley, California).
Hubbard is possessed of one of the purest gifts and hard-work ethics in contemporary jazz, and both are on display here. This Pablo recording was originally released in 1982 then digitally re-mastered and re-released in '92. Hubbard and his trumpet are back to exploring the roots of his creative genius here after an extended venture into the more commercial soul-funk crossover market.
Joining Hubbard is Harold Land (tenor saxophone), frequent Hubbard collaborator Billy Childs (piano), Larry Klein (bass), Steve Houghton (drums), and Buck Clark (percussion). The sextet immediately settles into a special zone on Hubbard's composition "Gibralter," working a cool Latin groove for all it's worth. Hubbard has often been linked in the lineage of jazz trumpeting to the late, great Clifford Brown. That connection becomes beautifully apparent on Brown's "Joy Spring," as Hubbard's soloing combines reverence with his own unique sonic curiosity. BORN TO BE BLUE is Hubbard truly at home.
