Freddie Hubbard's Fusion Jazz of Red Clay is something that the younger generations within Jazz and Hip Hop admire and aspire to. Title song 'Red Clay' was sampled by both A Tribe Called Quest in 'Jazz (We've Got)' and Freestyle Fellowship in 'Parkbench People', only to be covered by today's new vocal jazz Sankofa JosÃ© James.
You would need half a day to explain the intricacies of a song such as 'The Intrepid Fox'. Red Clay seamlessly blends Bop with Soul Jazz and Fusion in a way that would remain unsurpassed for a long time. Indispensable.
