Freddie Hubbard, the CTI Years 1970-1973

When top jazz trumpeter Freddie Hubbard began recording for the CTI label in the early 1970s, he combined his mastery of bop with forays into fusion and imaginative interpretations of contemporary rock and soul hits.

With more than two hours of music, this two-CD compilation showcases Hubbard at the head of several line-ups at four different concerts, broadcast on different radio stations, performing songs from his popular albums Red Clay, First Light and Street Life.

It is presented here with background notes and images.
