Freddie Hubbard : Open Sesame CD
Freddie Hubbard's recording debut announced the arrival of an extraordinary trumpeter, both technically and artistically. This album teamed him with tenor saxophonist/composer Tina Brooks (they would reconvene a week later to record Brooks' "True Blue") and pianist McCoy Tyner a few months before he joined John Coltrane's quintet.
This is one of those stunning Blue Note records where the musicians mesh and the tunes, arrangements and solo get as close to perfection as one can. Alternate takes of both Tina Brooks tunes are added to the original album.
Produced by Alfred Lion. Recording engineer: Rudy Van Gelder. Recorded at the Van Gelder Studio, Englewood Cliffs, New Jersey on June 19, 1960. Remastered in 2001 by Rudy Van Gelder. All transfers from the analog tapes to digital were made at 24-bit resolution.
