Ready for Freddie - a Desert Island Disc

Ready for Freddie - a Desert Island Disc

The date: August 21, 1961

The venue: Van Gelder Studio, Englewood, New Jersey, USA

The musicians: Freddie Hubbard (trumpet), Wayne Shorter (tenor sax), Bernard McKinney (euphonium), McCoy Tyner (piano), Art Davis (bass), Elvin Jones (drums).

Engineer: Rudy Van Gelder

Label: Blue Note BST 84085

Released: April 1962


Outstanding music and performance by the masters. The sound on the Classic Series Blue Note vinyl reissue (2021) is excellent. Of course the 2014 re-issue by Music Matters Jazz is the one to get if you can find it at a reasonable price. Then there is the option of getting an original copy, for which you part with $500+. 


This is one of my Desert Island Discs.  Listen here.
