CD reissue. The underrated trumpeter Freddie Hubbard plays some very tasty Bebop Jazz here. The band assembled for 'Straight Life' pretty much explains why; Joe Henderson on sax, George Benson on guitar, Herbie Hancock on piano/keyboards, Ron Carter on bass and Jack DeJohnette on drums. To say that these masters are at the top of their game here is an understatement. They make ageless music with passion, freedom, and well-earned wisdom. Freddie unloads here right from the start and Joe Henderson catches the fire too as he blazes like never before. George Benson also is a standout with his creative solo and occasional flurries of notes. 'Straight Life' may very well pave the way for pop and rock fans to get themselves into jazz.
