This release presents the complete LP Open Sesame (Blue Note BLP4040), Freddie Hubbard’s first album as a leader. Recorded in a quintet format, it features the talented Tina Brooks on tenor sax (who wouldn’t record again after March 1961), and McCoy Tyner on piano (who would have his first gig with John Coltrane that same month). As a bonus, a complete session recorded by Hubbard shortly after our main album, which marks his only existing encounter with tenor saxophonist Walter Benton (it belongs to Benton’s LP Out of This World). It is also noteworthy for featuring the celebrated Miles Davis rhythm section of Wynton Kelly, Paul Chambers and Jimmy Cobb.
