Album Review

This one is a head-scratcher. Collectables' massive eight-disc box set of Freddie Hubbard recordings contains some of his most experimental and wide-ranging, if not his very best, recordings for the Atlantic imprint — a relationship he began when he left Blue Note in 1966. Strangely, while some of the titles one might expect to be here, most importantly, Backlash his label debut, are missing, others are included, such as Black Angel, Soul Experiment, and Echoes of Blue.
