This Prestige release from 1981 is an unedited recording of the last night of a live Friday-through-Sunday series at San Francisco's Keystone Korner. The famous club is no longer, but the sound of Hubbard and his splendid company that great weekend survives. SUNDAY was put out as the first volume, because the recording on the final night was truer to the sound in the club. However, do not take that as a reason to dismiss FRIDAY and SATURDAY.
The lineup features Hubbard on trumpet, the great Joe Henderson (tenor saxophone), Bobby Hutcherson (vibes), and a seething young rhythm section that would quickly move to the forefront of jazz in the '80s and '90s. The blowing on that night was furious, and it's captured perfectly here. Hubbard's own tunes-"Birdlike" (for Charlie Parker), "The Intrepid Fox," and the funky "Skydive"-all catch fire. The solos exchanged between Henderson and Hubbard on "The Intrepid Fox"-long, passionate explorations packed with leaping phrases and dynamic tension-show these two giants at their straight-ahead best.
