Description

Freddie Hubbard entered Creed Taylor''s studio for the third time in 1971 with the express purpose of making a record radically different from anything he''d cut before; he was looking for it to use electricity and to be out of the soul-jazz mold, but was also more ambitious and wanted to push that envelope and himself. Taylor and Hubbard assembled a band that included Herbie Hancock , Eric Gale, George Benson, Ron Carter, Jack DeJohnette, Airto Moreira, and Richard Wyands. Now it''s available in its essential form, mastered from analog tapes and pressed on 180g vinyl at Pallas.

This 40th anniversary remastered edition sounds unbelievably great - previous releases can be used as coasters and yes, you need this, you just do. What a great album this is, thanks to great tunes, Hubbard at his peak, and the brilliant contribution of Don Sebesky. A classic. If you''ve never heard it, get it. If you own a previous release, get it and dispose of the previous release. Head over heels and over the moon here.

If you''re looking for some smooth jazz that''s really jazz, this is an early example of jazz-pop fusion that actually worked. Great mood music, and nice solos from Hubbard and others, including George Benson on guitar. The arrangements incorporate a variety of woodwinds, a string section, harp, French horns, and extra percussion, giving the album a richness that most listeners will appreciate, although others may feel it''s over-produced.
The good sales of this 1971 recording, and the Grammy Award it received, boosted Hubbard''s career and this type of jazz sound. Also, this was one of the early 1970s performances that helped convince jazz trumpeters that they needed to double on flugelhorn.
The album will have nostalgic value for jazz listeners who are old enough to remember when it came out. I discovered "First Light" shortly after I started college, nearly two years after it was recorded, and it was my introduction to Freddie Hubbard. For those who have yet to be introduced, this is a good place to start - but you also need to check out some of his earlier work, such as Ready for Freddie .

It''s no surprise that Freddie Hubbard won the Grammy for this album in 1972! It is a masterpiece and more!

Creed Taylor brought together some of the finest jazz musicians in the business for this tour de force. Beginning with Freddie Hubbard on trumpet and flugelhorn, Richard Wyands on piano, Hubert Laws on flute, Herbie Hancock on the Fender Rhodes, George Benson on guitar, Eric Gale on guitar, Ron Carter on bass, Jack DeJohnette on drums, and Airto Moreira on percussion. And that''s just to name a FEW!!!

In addition to the who''s who in jazz names, there are within the credits, various musicians on the vibes, flutes, bassoons, English horn, oboe, clarinets, French horns, harp, and violins. Oh, yes, THIS is a work of a grand nature!

Apart from the original LP, this CD includes two bonus tracks, one being a sixteen-minute live version of the title song. If you love Freddie and if you love Creed Taylor productions, this is a must for your collection!

First Light is the third of a prolific relationship between Freddie Hubbard and CTI records, and the first to feature the gorgeous arrangements of Don Sebesky. The orchestration gives the title track a spacey mood over which Freddie and guitarist George Benson play gently, yet very strongly. Listening to it truly takes me to a special place and leaves me awestruck, with the image of the first light of morning the song evokes. The cover of "Uncle Albert/Admiral Halsey" pulls the same trick with tougher solos and an arrangement that keeps the melody intact. Benson''s solo here is tough, smart and imaginative, the place he would go on his own "Bad Benson" in 1974. Fair to say, these guys were on a roll. The Sebesky charts suggest the best of Gil Evans''s work for Miles Davis. Yes, the year was 1971. Jazz was starting to sound different. To the string section skeptics, my heart goes out. There''s some gorgeous playing on here and word is, "First Light" was Freddie''s personal favorite.

PS: Make sure you get the RVG edition with the bonus live version of "First Light". It translates great to an unorchestrated setting and Freddie''s performance is nothing short of a religious experience.

A basic principle of marketing and advertising states that if you have a great product, chances are it''ll sell itself. This principle also applies to the world of jazz - and Freddie Hubbard exploits his product with such passion and zeal that the man needs nothing more than his trumpet and a group of skilled sidemen to offer a sound that could fill thousands of billboards.

I''ve been a devoted listener to Hubbard''s work, both collecting and indulging myself in all of his projects, ranging from his tenure has a sideman with Art Blakey, Herbie Hancock, Bill Evans, and Hank Mobley as well as all of his material as group leader, and, at times, Hubbard comes close to displacing Miles Davis as my all-time favorite trumpeter.

When I first heard this album, it was not hard to displace the legendary Miles Davis and rank Freddie Hubbard as the greatest trumpet player in jazz.

The liner notes tell the rest of the story - about how, even in 1971, Hubbard was on the verge of nationally displacing Miles Davis as the #1 jazz trumpeter because Miles was venturing too deeply into the impressionistic virtuosities of jazz-rock fusion and was simply keeping afloat by reputation alone. But when it came to pure, unadulterated talent: Hubbard was the man who could play the trumpet like no one else.

Many of Hubbard''s earlier albums are some of the best jazz records I''ve ever listened to, and much of his sideman work is surely something to brag on, but by the time this album was recorded, Hubbard infused this album with something that no other album contains: communication. From the very first note to the very last, it is impossible to turn your attention away from the music because each note is like a word in an intimate conversation - and each word is part of a wonderful story.

For instance, on the opening title track, the listener is immediately transported to a remote location at sunrise, and as the sun continues to rise with each note, the location becomes less and less remote until it becomes an entire metropolis booming with activity due to the break of day. Hubbard does an extraordinary job transforming Leonard Bernstein''s "Lonely Town" into an expressionistic masterwork of his own while at the same time giving new life to a freshly released "Uncle Albert/Admiral Halsey" by Paul and Linda McCartney. By the end of the final track, "Fantasy in D," which lives up to the fantastic qualities of its name, you will want to listen to the whole thing again and again and again. These songs are not the typical jazz interpretations of pop songs and showtunes: these are pop songs and showtunes which, because of Hubbard''s great product, become jazz standards.

Freddie Hubbard was one of the most prolific jazz trumpeters in the business. He played a hot and sassy horn! When he was teamed up with George Benson, Eric Gale, Herbie Hancock, and Ron Carter (just to name a few) on this one of many Creed Taylor-produced collaborations, he most deservedly won the Grammy!

The opening title song "First Light" has an ethereal beginning with a diverse arrangement. An unusual arrangement of Paul McCartney''s "Uncle Albert/Admiral Halsey" is most satisfying. Henry Mancini''s "Moment To Moment" has a hauntingly sweet sound. "Lonely Town" is darkly complex.

There are many sides and moods to each of the songs within this original work. With stylish jazzy rhythms and rich orchestrations, this is THE Freddie Hubbard album to have!

This is a studio recording which Hubbard himself rated as one of his best, largely because he did not feel the need to blow his socks off!! He does indeed play some lovely,restrained trumpet/flugelhorn,backed by some far-from-intrusive orchestral settings - which includes, what is anathema to some jazz fans, the "dreaded" violin/string ensemble. The tracks which do include such backing are, however, extremely tastefully performed and the strings certainly do not intrude. The studio sets are enlived with contributions from George Benson,and a rhythm section of Ron Carter and Jack Dejohnette. Added to the Creed Taylor studio sessions is a live performance which provides the real nitty gritty jazz combo elements to this excellent CD - you''re on your own lads, there''s no strings attached - just get on with doing what all jazzmen do best,performing in front of a live audience with no safety net.

Being a fan of Freddie Hubbard for many years it seems odd that this passed me by. I don''t have all his albums and somehow even though I usually liked CTI''s output I missed this. Having read the previous review I bought it and love it. At this time orchestral arrangements were in vogue (some of us remember Deep Purple and the RPO) and a lot were on the cheesy side of jazz/lift music. This is totally different Hubbard plays beautifully on this album and the big arrangements are there to enhance rather than water down the performances and never get in the way. Great stars support, Ron Carter, George Benson, Jack DeJohnette, Airto, Hubert Laws, Herbie Hancock etc etc FABULOUS!!!!! Thanks to the previous reviewer.

I guess that this is seen, by many jazz critics, as the end of Freddie Hubbard''s real creative period. I don''t necessarily go along with that, Freddie was a brilliant musician who was constantly trying to move forward and who also had his troubles but the music here is rather great, the title track that opens the album is sublime and although I am not always a fan of elaborate romanticised orchestration in jazz i do really like this, Moment To Moment is another stand out track but as with most of the CTI recordings it has a brilliant balance across the whole album. Like Miles Davis the setting changes but Freddies playing always shines out and he is also just playing that horn like he always did
