One thing I wish is that they would cut the bass solos in half, and give the extra time to the trumpet.

^^^ shortened (or non-existent) bass solos are my wish on pretty much every jazz record ever (and I'm a bass player.)
A friend gave me his extra copy of Red Clay quite some time ago, and I have yet to play it; need to do that, it seems.

George Benson is also amazing on those Freddie Hubbard records.
My big complaint about CTI recordings actually is that they have too much swing on them. Swinging jazz sounds terrible the way Creed Taylor produced it. Every track should be proto-smooth-jazz, lite funk and ambient space jams.

would it be sacrilege to say i kinda like the live bonus track version of "red clay" on the CD reish more than the album version?
