great stuff


Great arrangements and well played. While Freddie Hubbard has been more than open about his struggle to get his playing back to its former physical power, I'll take whatever I can get - he's still a heavyweight in my book and I like what he plays here, restrained though it may be. Just a really good jazz album - everyone sounds involved and 'on' - no fluff whatsoever.

New This Week: Cloud Nothings, Craig Finn and More

By J. Edward Keyes, Editor-in-Chief

The first HUGE new release day of 2012, so strap in and get ready for a pretty comprehensive rundown! Dave Sumner's got your jazz picks, and I've got the rest. Here we go! Cloud Nothings, Attack on Memory: ALBUM OF THE DAY. Dylan Baldi grows up in a nanosecond, making a snarling rock record that hurtles forward with the speed and fury of a meteor.

They Say All Music Guide

Freddie Hubbard is heard exclusively on flügelhorn on this impressive release, accompanied by the New Jazz Composers Octet; although none of the octet members contributed any compositions to the session, trumpeter David Weiss did most of the arrangements, sometimes collaborating with Hubbard. Gone are the lip problems that plagued Hubbard somewhat during the 1990s, as he launches into his richly textured post-bop “One of Another Kind,” which also has strong solos by tenor saxophonist Craig Handy and alto saxophonist Myron Walden. The leader’s funky “Blues for Miles” is reminiscent of a street parade, while the Latin flavor of “Dizzy’s Connotations” obviously salutes Dizzy Gillespie, and Hubbard also revisits his classic “Red Clay.” The only song not from Hubbard’s pen is Chick Corea’s “Inner Space,” a fine arrangement by Weiss that oddly features no trumpet or flügelhorn solos. The supporting cast on this topnotch CD also includes Kenny Garrett, Xavier Davis, Javon Jackson, and Dwayne Burno. – Ken Dryden
