After several terrible sellout albums for Columbia, Freddie Hubbard attempted to rekindle some of the magic from his CTI years on this small group date.
With such CTI alumni as flutist Hubert Laws, tenorman Joe Henderson, and even guitarist George Benson (on one selection) helping out, Hubbard shows that he still had the chops (if not necessarily the creativity) to continue being a major jazz trumpeter.
Unfortunately his career has been pretty aimless ever since.
