  • 1970 Soul-Funk Hard-Bop Album Lays Groundwork for Decade's Fusion Recordings
  • First Set Made for Creed Taylor's CTI Label

Features: 180 grams Single Vinyl Record

As the label’s first release, Red Clay established the soul-funk template Creed Taylor’s CTI imprint would follow for the next decade. Joined by the likes of Herbie Hancock, Joe Henderson, and others, Freddie Hubbard lays down bluesy hard-bop epiphanies, turning in his most memorable work as a leader. In addition to standing as a career-defining affair, the 1970 effort also marks Hubbard's break from his Blue Note era and signals the fusion-minded direction he and other players would further investigate in the years to come.
