Freddie Hubbard’s ‘Breaking Point’ was recorded on 7th May 1964. It is without a doubt Hubbard’s most experimental Blue Note album. The opening title cut has a quasi-Latin/ Caribbean melody but is overall explorative. ‘Far Away’ elicits Coltrane’s Spanish/ Moorish themes (a la Ole) that are accentuated by James Spaulding’s exotic and evocative flute. It features superb bass and drum solos by Eddie Khan and Joe Chambers respectively. Despite its title ‘Blues Frenzy’ is a straightforward piece of Soul Jazz with a 6/4 waltz time. It is the least ‘out there’ piece on the set. As such it is an aural respite from the intensity that surrounds it.
