Riverside/OJC, 1962. Used ... $7.99
An all-star set from Cannonball Adderley – a hip standout in his pre-Capitol years for Riverside! The "plus" in the title is pianist Wynton Kelly – who works with the group wonderfully on 4 of the album's 6 tracks – bringing in a slightly different feel on the keys than ... read more CD

Hard to find Riverside LP of this group led by Gigi Gryce running down nice hard bop numbers.
