Cannonball Adderley Quintet In San Francisco

LP (Item 19712) Riverside, 1959 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


4.70 5

One of the greatest Cannonball Adderley albums from the Riverside years – a completely smoking live date recorded in San Francisco, often with long tracks that really let the group open up and do their thing! The lineup here is that classic one that first grabbed attention – the group with brother Nat on cornet, Sam Jones on bass, Louis Hayes on drums – and a young Bobby Timmons on piano, really cooking things up with tremendous drive, energy, and a sense of the groove! Titles include a great workout on Timmons' classic "This Here", plus originals "You Got It" and Spontaneous Combustion", and a great version of "Hi Fly". Soul jazz at its best, by one of the groups who gave the genre its name in the first place! (OJC pressing.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Lush Side Of Cannonball
EmArcy, Late 50s. Very Good
A wonderfully mellow set of ballads recorded by Cannonball, with orchestral backings by Richard Hayman. The album's typical of the kind of "all over the map" approach that Mercury used during Cannon's early years – before he'd settled down into the one-man soul jazz factory he ...

Riverside, 1957. Near Mint-
Hmmm . . . Don't know what the "difference" is here, given that the set was one of a number of Duke-inspired sessions of the late 50s, but given that Terry was a big force in the best ones, and that he's working here with some of Duke's best players, we'll give the set a thumbs up! The ... LP, Vinyl record album

Latin Impressions
Riverside, Early 60s. Very Good-
The Latin Impressions here are more Brazilian than Cuban – and maybe a bit Spanish, too – given the strong use of acoustic guitar from Charlie Byrd! The set's got a laidback, open feel – and Byrd's guitar work is mighty deft, yet without all the frills and flowers of some of the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Village Caller
Riverside, 1961. Very Good
A funky vibes classic – and a landmark set from Detroit vibist Johnny Lytle! The set's one of the purest examples of Johnny's great early groove – a tightly stepping version of soul jazz that played big in the clubs at the time, and which has forever made Lytle one of the favorites of ...

Electric Bath
Columbia, 1967. Very Good+
A pretty tasty little album from Don Ellis – his first funky outing for Columbia Records, and a groundbreaking batch of big band funk tracks! The set's quite different from some of Don's earlier recordings – in that it's a bit less academic, and has a focus more on a strong and ... LP, Vinyl record album
