AllMusic Review by

The Art of Freddie Hubbard: The Atlantic Years combines cuts the legendary jazz trumpeter recorded for Atlantic during the '60s and '70s. These were albums Hubbard made after leaving Blue Note and during his transition toward more soul, funk, and avant-garde-leaning jazz. That said, most of the cuts on this two-disc collection are still acoustic-based jazz with plenty of groove, swing, and bluesy, muscular improvisation.
