  • Freddie Hubbard was one of the most prolific trumpeters in the jazz industry, his blowing technique was both hot and stylish! When he teamed up with George Benson, Jack DeJohnette and Ron Carter (to name a few) for this, one of many records produced by Creed Taylor, he deservedly won a Grammy!

    The first, title track "First Light" begins ethereally and features a wide-ranging arrangement. Another unusual arrangement of Paul McCartney's "Uncle Albert / Admiral Halsey" is very compelling. Henry Mancini's "Moment To Moment" has a beguilingly lovely sound. "Lonely Town" has a dark complexity.

    In this original compilation, versatility and diverse moods are found in every song. With its stylish jazzy rhythms and lush orchestrations, this is THE Freddie Hubbard album to have!
