Recorded on November 6, 1960, at Rudy Van Gelder Studio in Englewood Cliffs, New Jersey.

One of the most exciting trumpeters of all time, Freddie Hubbard ranked with Lee Morgan as the most vital trumpet player of the 1960s. Hubbard was a powerhouse from the beginning of his career. Goin' Up was only his second recording as a leader but it finds the 22-year old in blazing form, displaying brilliant technique, dazzling ideas, a memorable sound, and a vivid imagination. Matched with Hank Mobley and McCoy Tyner in a quintet, Hubbard frequently blows the roof off the Blue Note studios, whether playing originals by Mobley and Kenny Dorham or his own “Blues For Brenda.” Some musicians take some time to become significant, but Freddie Hubbard was a giant from the start and the music he created on Goin' Up can rank with anything being recorded today.

The "golden age" of recordings was from 1955 to 1965, at the beginning of the LP and the stereo era, where pure vacuum tube amplification helped produce recordings demonstrating unparalleled fidelity and warmth, lifelike presence and illumination.

 Like all Music Matters Jazz releases, this audiophile vinyl reissue is remastered from the original analogue Van Gelder studio tapes and pressed on 180g virgin vinyl at RTI. The highest quality gatefold cover features original session photography on the inside.
