Through the 1970s and into the early 1980s, Freddie Hubbard aimed at the crossover market that gave pop success to a few musicians with jazz backgrounds. The result was Hubbard albums that were, typical of the fusion or crossover genre, neither here nor there. At his core Hubbard is one of the least compromising musicians alive. Yielding to that inescapable truth about his nature, he put his commercial aspirations aside and shifted his trumpet back into the straight-ahead gear that had taken him to jazz stardom as a young man. This 1982 collaboration with Oscar Peterson's quartet served as a definitive announcement that Hubbard was through fooling around. His blistering playing on "All Blues" and "Tippin'" and his tender balladry on "Portrait of Jennie" are among his best work.

with Joe Pass, Niels-Henning Ørsted Pedersen, Martin Drew
