All I can say is you have to hear "Red Clay". Freddie Hubbard set out to be the greatest jazz trumpeter and he succeeded here. Joined by a young Herbie Hancock and Ron Carter, fresh from the Miles group, and Joe Henderson, he has written a amazing rockin tune that you can't help grooving with. The rhythm is unique and complex. The few chords are rich and allow for unlimited modal experimentation by the soloists. But mainly it's the beat that pushes you and I always hope it won't end. A truly wonderful piece for Hubbard's debut album. I reminds me of Herbie's first album and "Maiden Voyage". Another cut,"Intrepid Fox" is almost as good. If you like rock, funk, fusion and jazz you'll find it all here.
