Freddie Hubbard - Ready For Freddie LP

New. Sealed. 180 Gram AUDIOPHILE Vinyl

The Jazz world was more than ready for Freddie Hubbard when the trumpeter burst upon the national scene in 1960. Clifford Brown, an early influence on Hubbard, had died tragically four years earlier. While Lee Morgan was making his mark, Hubbard's arrival gave Jazz a new explosive and colorful virtuoso. His trumpet solos made him a giant within a short time. 

Ready For Freddie (1961) finds Hubbard completely emerging from the pack and taking his place among the elite. The trumpeter introduces two of his finest compositions, the uptempo blues 'Birdlike' and the dramatic 'Crisis' and plays beautifully on his ballad feature 'Weaver Of Dreams.' He shows sidemen Wayne Shorter, McCoy Tyner and Elvin Jones that he was in their league, despite being only 23. This is one of the quintessential albums for which Freddie Hubbard is best remembered.

Like all Music Matters Jazz releases, this audiophile vinyl reissue is mastered from the original analog tape and pressed on 180g virgin vinyl at RTI in Camarillo, CA. The highest quality gatefold cover features original session photography on the inside.
