    Personnel: Freddie Hubbard (trumpet); Joe Henderson, Stanley Turrentine (alto saxophone); Herbie Hancock (piano); Johnny Hammond (electric piano, organ); George Benson (guitar); Ron Carter (bass); Lenny White, Billy Cobham (drums); Airto Moreira (percussion). Producer: Creed Taylor. Reissue producer: Didier C. Deutsch. Recorded at Van Gelder Studios, Englewood Cliffs, New Jersey; Southgate Palace, Los Angeles, California between January 27, 1970 and July 19, 1971. Includes liner notes by James Isaacs. All tracks have been digitally remastered. Personnel: Freddie Hubbard (trumpet). Recording information: Van Gelder Studios (01/27/1970-01/29/1970). RED CLAY is easily one of trumpeter Freddie Hubbard's finest albums. Falling cleanly between the straight-ahead hard bop of his mid-1960s releases and his more accessible '70s ventures, this is an irresistible mix of electric and acoustic jazz, elevated by dazzling technical proficiency and funk-infused rhythms. Hubbard displays his trademark compositional skill here, with memorable melodies, open and often shifting tempos, and attention to tonal color and atmosphere. RED CLAY also boasts spectacular personnel: Joe Henderson on tenor sax, Herbie Hancock on electric piano, Ron Carter on bass, and Lenny White on drums. Every musician here is marvelously adept at playing both inside and outside, and each proves his mettle as a sensitive group player and a soloist (particularly Henderson and Hancock). White and Carter's rapport pushes the group toward quicksilver bop tempos ("The Intrepid Fox") and in-the-cut grooves (the title track). The reissue contains an incendiary version of "Red Clay" with a different lineup, including guitarist George Benson and percussionist Airto Moreira.

      I have been listening to traditional jazz (that from 1965 to 1975) and have collected all the classics. I was however nothing but a Miles Davis, John Coltrane, and Eric Dolphy. However, all these classic trumpet players get pushed back on this CD. What I call a "Hidden Classic". The remaster is better than the vinyl......hands down. We jazz purists of this era are enjoying the remastered versions, and some are much better for it. This takes the cake as the best. I was not a Freddie Hubbard fan until I read about this record on a ten best of all time list. I had to hear it. It delivers a masterful blend. The personnel were at the top of their game and deliver a classic top ten of all time (in my judgement) with power and knock out verve. If you enjoy classic jazz from this period, this Cd is as needed for your collection as say "Maiden Voyage" and "In A Silent Way" by Herbie Hancock and Miles Davis respectively. Buy it and sit back and enjoy Freddie Hubbard and company. It is an artist I avoided for a long time. A perfect blend of old style and the funk that started around this time
