At his peak, Freddie Hubbard was a brilliant virtuoso performer with a rich, full tone that remained consistent in slow passages as well as fast ones. As one of the greatest hard-bop trumpeters of his era, he created impassioned blues lines without sacrificing the context of the music he was playing. It is evident here that Freddie was one of the greatest technical trumpeters ever to play in the jazz idiom.

Hubbard gained fame playing with Art Blakey's Jazz Messengers (1961-1964) next to Wayne Shorter and Curtis Fuller. Only two bandleaders have recorded under the Jazz Messengers moniker-drummer Art Blakey and his onetime rhythm section mate, pianist Horace Silver. This album could be an unofficial Jazz Messengers project. Hubbard was a member of Blakey's group when he recorded it, as was trombonist Curtis Fuller. Tenor saxophonist John Gilmore (on a rare non-Sun Ra Arkestra session) and bassist Art Davis later recorded with Blakey. On Juan Tizol's 'Caravan' Hubbard delivers a two-minute solo that encompasses all the trademarks of his playing-speed, power, and precision. À la Blakey, drummer Louis Hayes plays a quick solo introduction for the Hubbard original 'Bob's Place.' 'Happy Times,' another Hubbard piece, has a classic Tin Pan Alley sound and features a mellifluous solo by pianist Tommy Flanagan. Gershwin's 'Summertime' is then given a bit of Spanish tinge, with Hubbard's ambitious 'The 7th Day' closing the set.
