"Red Clay" is a jazz classic. Period. And now it becomes the second CTI album to be released on SACD (Hybrid issue, that plays on SACD and CD players, like had happened with the first CTI title on this format, Jim Hall's "Concierto," that came out on Mobile Fidelity in 2003.)

Includes four great tunes composed by Hubbard: Besides the title track, which became a contemporary jazz standard, includes three other great compositions by Hubbard: "Delphia" (a gorgeous ballad dedicated to his mother, with Herbie moving to organ and Henderson playing flute), "Suite Sioux" and the explosive hard-bop "The Intrepid Fox."
