Sweet Return is a definitive outing from the energetic trumpeter Freddie Hubbard. Joined by an all-star lineup of bassist Eddie Gomez, pianist Joanne Brackeen, drummer Roy Haynes and tenor Lew Tabackin, the ensemble tenderly interprets standards with an overwhelming amount of originality. Standout moments included the classics, “Misty,” “Whistling Away The Dark,” and “The Night Has A Thousand Eyes.” Hubbard’s timing is beautifully spaced and his tone has never sounded more vibrant. Experience this masterwork as a super hi-res download!
One of Freddie Hubbard’s best albums since the early ’70’s, this quintet date finds him joined by quite an all-star lineup: Lew Tabackin on tenor and flute, pianist Joanne Brackeen (who has many fine solos throughout the album), bassist Eddie Gomez and drummer Roy Haynes. Highpoints include Hubbard’s tender version of “Misty” (at the time he had a particularly lovely tone on fluegelhorn), Brackeen’s “Heidi-B” and the quintet’s rendition of the standard “The Night Has a Thousand Eyes”.
