"Up Jumped Spring" is a jazz waltz by Freddie Hubbard which debuted in 1962 on the album Three Blind Mice while he was a member of The Jazz Messengers with trombonist Curtis Fuller, tenor saxophone player Wayne Shorter, pianist Cedar Walton, bassist Jymie Merritt, and drummer Art Blakey. Hubbard did not record the song under his own name until his 1966 Atlantic recording Backlash. It has been recorded more than 150 times since. Abbey Lincoln added lyrics on her 1991 album You Gotta Pay the Band. Up Jumped Spring is a fairly common jam session waltz.Its structure (A-A-B-A 16-16-8-16) is similar to the song Speak Low by Kurt Weill and Ogden Nash. Along with Spring Can Really Hang You Up the Most and Joy Spring, it is one of three songs about the Spring season eagerly adopted by jazz musicians.
