Excellent reissue on first Blue Note session with Freddie Hubbard as leader. Freddie would go on to dominate the Blue Note scene for years, gracing us with numerous titles in the catalog. Bringing back some of these rare and sought after LPs is what it’s all about! A great way to fill out your collection.

What a bold, sumptuous trumpet sound this LP has given us. It just jumps out and sings from the left speaker. Everyone at the sessions is on point, but there's no denying who is the leader and given the spotlight treatment. Can't go wrong at this price point, mastered by KG and pressed on a nice slab

Outstanding quality pressing! the sound is incredible and the music on this album is pure eargasm! Highly recommended, blue note has done it again on this great series of 80s and classic (stay away from the 75).

Very pleased with this pressing at this price point, a great approach by BN that does the recording justice, as well as keeping it in reach of those wanting a quality record without breaking the bank

Great way to toast the kid with the BN80. Hubb’s horn hums. Sound is fresh as spring morning.

Beautiful, quiet pressing. Quintessential Van Gelder - Hubbard sounds amazing. Has to be the best pressing of this record.

Fantastic! Clean, flat and flawless pressing. Dynamic with a nice sound stage. It has a full, warm and expansive sound. I got mine from Amazon. This one was done right!

Anyone has this and the BN80 who can comment on the difference? Is it worth paying the extra money for this master, pressing and the tip on jacket?

I agree, this is a brilliant release. Kevin Gray has done an excellent job with the master tapes on this and pushed and articulated sounds masterfully. The pressing is as I expected, literally perfect! It's why I get these because they are pressed by Optimal Media GmbH, I have utmost confidence in what they do, I know I'll get a brilliant pressing. Proven with these......

To me one of the best three Freddie albums. And it was a debut! Many strong experiences through the listening of this album. Freddie plays like old matador and Tina supported him enough. Strong bass of Sam Jones as well as Jarvis on drums. Tyner´s talent just "opened sesame". Magnificent. Rainbo pressing is decent, Scorpio reissues are average or poor. Sound missing detail and depth. Vinyl was cut louder but without distortion. But all instrument in one unnatural dynamic FQ - bass+/treble+. The most scary is Hub´s Nub with reversed L+R channels! Buy 80th anniversary.
