David Axelrod/Cannonball AdderleyMessiah ... CD
RCA/Real Gone, 1971. New Copy Gatefold ... $5.99 13.98
David Axelrod takes on Handel's Messiah – and the result is an amazingly complex set of music – very similar to his earlier albums on Capitol Records, and his Warner work with the Electric Prunes! If you love the Axe, you'll find plenty to love here – spare, dark orchestrations, often with a subtle hint of funk in the rhythms, some jazzy flourishes, and this bold sense of studio majesty that marks Axelrod as one of the most inventive producers of his time! The sound's one that gave birth to a whole generation of hip hoppers and beatheads – and the proceedings are conducted by Cannonball Adderley, with a feel that's similar to other Adderley/Axelrod high-concept sets – like Soul Of The Bible or Soul Zodiac. Titles include "Overture", "Worthy Is the Lamb", "Behold Recitative", "Comfort Ye My People", and "And The Angel Said Unto Them". CD

✨✧ Kenny Clarke, Cannonball Adderley, & OthersBohemia After Dark (with bonus track) ... CD
Savoy, 1955. Used ... $4.99
An excellent hardbop session from the glory days of the Savoy label – easily one of the label's key 50s classics! Drummer Kenny Clarke's at the front of the group – but all players are great, and the set features work by Cannonball Adderley on alto, Jerome Richardson on tenor, Donald Byrd on trumpet, Nat Adderley on cornet, Hank Jones or Horace Silver on piano, and Paul Chambers on bass. The Adderley brothers sound especially great – and the young Cannonball has a quality here that's more soulful and sharp-edged than his work on Mercury – much more in a Prestige blowing session style! Titles include "Late Entry", "Chasm", "Bohemia After Dark", and "Hear Me Talkin To Ya". CD features the bonus track "Caribbean Cutie". CD

A pretty warm and lyrical set by Kenny – accompanied here by a larger group that includes Cecil Payne, David Amram, and Cannonball Adderley on horns, plus a young Cedar Walton on piano. Dorham wrote 4 of the album's tracks, and they provide a perfect showcase for his polished trumpet style. Titles include "Spring Cannon", "Blue Spring", "Poetic", and "Passion Spring".

Capitol, Mid 60s. Used ... $4.99
The sweet vocals of Nancy join the classic Cannonball quintet for a great set of soul jazz tunes that was one of Capitol's biggest selling jazz sides in the 60s! About half the cuts feature Nancy on vocals – on tunes like "Save Your Love For Me", "Never Will I Marry", "Happy Talk", and "The Masquerade Is Over" – and the other half feature Cannon's group playing instrumentally – on cuts like "Teaneck", "One Man's Dream", and "Never Say Yes". Pop, but hip – nice and hip! CD

✨✧ Cannonball AdderleyAfrican Waltz (plus bonus track) ... CD
Riverside/OJC, 1961. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Pretty darn hip stuff – and with some great soloing by Cannonball! The record features Adderley's alto fronting a large group conducted by Ernie Wilkins, and featuring a host of hip players like Melba Liston, Oliver Nelson, Jerome Richardson, Ray Barretto, Sam Jones, and Wynton Kelly. The title track is a beautiful reading of Galt MacDermott's "African Waltz" – and other tracks include "Blue Brass Groove", "Something Different", "The Uptown", and "Letter From Home". Wilkins outdoes himself on this one, really providing some strong swinging arrangements that work well with the complicated groove of the project – and in a way, the record feels more like Randy Weston or Melba Liston's at the helm. CD also features the bonus track "This Here". CD

✨✧ Cannonball AdderleyBig Man ... CD
Fantasy/Real Gone, 1975. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the last albums ever issued by the great Cannonball Adderley – and one of the most ambitious, too! The set's a concept album – done in close collaboration with David Axelrod, in a similar spirit to some of Cannon's projects on the zodiac or the bible – but this time turned towards the legend of John Henry! The set's got some fuller orchestrations than some of the others – a bit of strings and a chorus, which sometimes gives the record the feel of a blacksploitation album, sometimes more of a Melvin Van Peebles project. Lead vocals are by Joe Williams, Randy Crawford, and Robert Guillaume – and the core combo features work from Cannonball on alto sax, Dawili Gonga on keyboards, Airto on percussion, and George Bohannon on trombone – on titles that include "Hundred an One Year", "Poundin", "The Steamdrill", "New Star Risin", "On His Bones", "Anybody Need A Big Man", "The Broomstick Song", and "Ten Mile Of Mountain".

Capitol, Mid 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Once again, Cannon proves that it's not the song, it's the singer! This set of tunes from the hit musical Fiddler On The Roof should be schmaltzy – but thanks to the quality of the group (a great sextet with Nat Adderley, Charles Lloyd, Joe Zawinul, Sam Jones, and Louis Hayes), and thanks to some hip production from David Axelrod, the album really sparkles! The tones of Cannon and Lloyd are great together – and the make the best songs sound like strange Eastern-tinged jazz numbers. Tunes include "To Life", "Fiddler On The Roof", "Cajvalach", "Sewing Machine", "Matchmaker", and "Now I Have Everything". CD features 4 bonus tracks too – "Little Boy With The Sad Eyes", "Goodbye Charlie", "Island Blues", and "Sweet Georgia Bright". CD

Riverside, Late 50s/Early 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
It's hard to think of a jazz musician having "greatest hits", but in the case of Cannonball, the title's well put! The album features work from Cannonball's prime early years – working with groups that include Bobby Timmons, Victor Feldman, Yusef Lateef, Joe Zawinul, and brother Nat Adderley – on titles that helped define a whole new sound in jazz for the 60s! Every cut's a winner – tunes you've heard covered often, but presented here in their original Riverside recordings – and tracks include "African Waltz", "Jeannine", "Gemini", "Things Are Getting Better", "Work Song", "Sack O Woe", and "This Here".

Capitol, 1966. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A rare live set by Cannonball Adderley – unreleased in America at the time, and performed with the style of Cannon's best work for Riverside! The album's very similar to some of the group's best live sets for Riverside – like the San Francisco or other Tokyo recording – done with tracks that are long and a bit stretched out, performed with Nat Adderley on cornet, Joe Zawinul on piano, Vic Gaskin on bass, and Roy McCurdy on drums. Titles include "Work Song", "Mercy Mercy Mercy", "This Here", "Jive Samba", and "Money In The Pocket". CD

✨✧ Cannonball AdderleyCountry Preacher – Live At Operation Breadbasket ... CD
Capitol, 1969. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A totally great set by Cannonball Adderley – one of his funkiest albums ever, recorded live at Operation Breadbasket under the supervision of Jesse Jackson, and a session in which the band is cooking a lot more than on some of their other albums from the time! The set grooves hard with some tight electric piano from Joe Zawinul – amazing snakey lines that not only set the tone for the whole record, but which really make for a strong evolution from the Mercy Mercy Mercy era of the group a few years before. Cannon's alto and soprano work are beautiful – a masterpiece of soul jazz expression – as is the cornet from brother Nat – and the group's completed by bassist Walter Booker and drummer Roy McCurdy. The album's a bucketful of great jazzy sample tunes – and tracks include "Walk Tall", "Country Preacher", "Hummin", and the extended "Afro-Spanish Omlet". CD

✨✧ Cannonball AdderleyJulian Cannonball Adderley (aka Cannonball Adderley Quintet In Chicago) ... LP
Mercury/Everest, 1959. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A later budget line reissue of this great session from 1959 – one that features John Coltrane playing with the Adderley group, recorded in Chicago when they were stopping through the city with Miles Davis' combo at the time! In fact, since the rhythm section includes Wynton Kelly, Paul Chambers, and Jimmy Cobb – and since Coltrane's sitting in with Cannon – the album's essentially a Kind Of Blue-era Miles album, recorded without Miles on trumpet, and grooving in a slightly more soul-based Adderley mode. Given the presence of Coltrane, there's a bit less of the gutbuckety soul jazz that Cannon was cutting in his own Quintet – but that's more than ok with us, as the Coltrane solos more than make up for that difference! Twe love Coltrane's "The Sleeper" and the set features 4 other numbers, including "Wabash", "You're A Weaver Of Dreams", 'Stars Fell On Alabama" and "The Tune Of The Hickory Stick".

Capitol, 1966. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
If the 60's ever had a "hit" jazz record, it was probably this one! The album's a sparkling live session featuring the trademark soul jazz sounds of the Cannonball Adderley group with Joe Zawinul on acoustic and electric piano, and brother Nat Adderley on cornet. The tracks have a long soulful groove, with gutbucket solos from the 3 above-mentioned players, and tight live production by a young David Axelrod. Titles include "Sticks", "Hippodelphia", "Sack O Woe", and the classic "Mercy, Mercy, Mercy" – a jazz theme that you'll recognize instantly! CD

Blue Note/Mobile Fidelity, 1958. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A landmark album – even if it was the only session that Cannonball Adderley ever cut for Blue Note! The album was recorded at a time when Adderley was working with Miles Davis – and as such, the session features a group that includes Miles, blowing in a cool tone that's a perfect offset to Cannonball's more soulful style. The rest of the group includes Hank Jones, Sam Jones, and Art Blakey – and like John Coltrane's Blue Train, the record's more of an "special session" than the usual Blue Note album, but the strength of the players make it one of the more memorable records of its day! Titles include "Somethin' Else", "One For Daddy-O", and a nice moody take on "Dancing In The Dark". Includes bonus track "Alison's Uncle". CD

✨✧ Cannonball AdderleyBBC Jazz 625 – 1964 (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
SSJ (Japan), 1964. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Killer work from the Cannonball Adderley Sextet of the early 60s – a group that we can never seem to get enough of! As you'd know from the albums by the combo at the time, the group was even more amazing in a live setting than in the studio – because it seemed that in concert, Cannonball and crew would open up to even more righteous, even more globally-conscious modes in both their rhythms and phrasing – which you can definitely hear on this excellent live date recorded for the BBC! The sound quality is excellent, and the players aren't afraid to bring plenty of themselves to the performance – maybe inspired by time in the spotlight on TV – which has Cannon shining on alto, alongside Nat Adderley on cornet, Charles Lloyd on tenor and flute, Sam Jones on bass, Joe Zawinul on piano, and Louis Hayes on drums. The material's been issued on DVD, but this is the first-ever CD release – and titles include "The Weaver", "Bohemia After Dark", "Come Sunday", "Sweet Georgia Bright", "Come Seven", "Jive Samba", and "The Song My Lady Sings".

Riverside, 1962. Used ... Out Of Stock
Rock-solid live material from the classic Cannonball Adderley Sextet – a combo who could usually groove even better on a concert date then they could in the studio! The album's one of a number of key live sides from Cannon in the 60s – and although it pre-dates his work on Capitol, it's done in a similar spacious mode – with plenty of longish tracks that build upon the core groove set down by Joe Zawinul's piano, Sam Jones' bass, and Louis Hayes' drums – a perfect backdrop for the creative and complicated solos of Cannon on alto, Nat Adderley on cornet, and Yusef Lateef on tenor, flute, and oboe! The date was recorded live at the Village Vanguard in 1962 – and titles include "Gemini", "Planet Earth", "Dizzy's Business", "Syn-anthesia", "Scotch & Water", and "Cannon's Theme".

Johnny CashKoncert V Praze (In Prague-Live) (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Legacy, 1983. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99 24.98
The Man In Black behind the Iron Curtain! The show was recorded live in Prague in 1978 – finding Johnny backed not only by his impeccable Tenessee Three, but it also features the chorus from The Johnny Cash Show – making it much more than a typical concert. The cultural gravity weighs strongly on the performances, without weighing the set down. A warmly charismatic concert from waning near end of the Cold War era. A great setlist of Cash classics, including "Ring Of Fire", "I Still Miss Someone", "Sunday Morning Coming Down", "I Walk The Line", "Casey Jones, "Hey Porter", "Wabash Cannonball", "City Of New Orleans", "I Still Miss Someone" and more.

Vee Jay/Collectables, 1959/1960. Used ... $8.99
2 classic bop sides from the long-gone Vee Jay label! Go is one of the few records made by the great bassist Paul Chambers as a leader, and like all of them, this is a tight session that features some of the best players of the hardbop idiom. Cannonball Adderley's on alto, Freddie Hubbard is on trumpet, Wynton Kelly's on piano, and Philly Joe Jones brings it all together on drums. The tracks are long, with a classic Vee Jay hardbop groove, and titles include "Ease It", "Awful Mean", and "Julie Ann". Kelly At Midnite is a nicely laidback set by Wynton Kelly – recording here with the crack team of Paul Chambers and Philly Joe Jones on rhythm, in a mellow set of long tracks with lots of soulful meandering solos. The album is hard to find in the original pressing – and cuts include Babs Gonzales' "Weird Lullaby", plus "On Stage" and "Pot Luck". CD

Wolfgang DaunerRischkas Soul ... CD
Brain/Long Hair (Germany), 1972. New Copy ... $19.99
A fantastic album from German keyboard giant Wolfgang Dauner – and maybe one of the few to perfectly balance both his soul jazz roots and his later trippier style! The music here is very groovy – much more in the mode of MPS Records electric jazz sets of the time than you'd guess from the album's placement on Brain Records – and the lineup features incredible work from Sigi Schwab on guitar – who can be open and spacious at some points, but then really jam with a groove at others! Likewise, the bassist Eberhard Weber can provide a lot of propulsion when needed, but also lay back and bow his cello in a more ECM-like way – and the album's two drummers, Fred Braceful and Roland Wittich, both show an equally deft ability to change up the groove! The real superstar, though, is the mighty Dauner – who plays piano, organ, and keyboards, plus a sweet bit of flute too – on tracks that include "Reading Machine", "Kamasutram", "Blues Far Out", "Flute Woman", and a freaky fuzzy take on Cannonball Adderley's "Jive Samba".

Miles Davis1958 Miles (Japanese pressing with bonus tracks) ... CD
Sony (Japan), 1958. Used ... $12.99
Some of the greatest Miles Davis material ever recorded – and not really ever officially issued as an album until this collection! The recordings are from the magical year of 1958, a time when Miles was working in the Kind Of Blue mode – on the album of the same name, one of his all-time standout classics. The work on this set is in a very similar spirit – recorded by a sextet that includes the rhythm section of Jimmy Cobb, Paul Chambers, and a young Bill Evans, who brings a magically modal feel to the album that really gives it an edge. Added to that are the saxophones of John Coltrane and Cannonball Adderley, blowing together in two ends of the soul spectrum, really stretching the color palette from Miles' usual work. Miles himself seems very inspired by the company, and works with plenty of space to allow the saxophonists to stretch out in wonderful solos – and Evans himself is simply amazing, working wonderfully in the setting, making us wish he'd recorded more group dates like this one! The first 3 tracks on the set were briefly issued on the flipside of the Jazz Track album (an obscure Columbia LP that also included 10 songs from the soundtrack to Ascenseur Pour L'Echafaud), and a few others on later live LPs – but this is the first time the material from that group has appeared together as a full album. Includes stellar versions of "Stella By Starlight", "Green Dolphin Street", "Fran Dance", "Little Melonae", and "Love For Sale". CD also features 2 bonus alternate takes – a total of 7 titles in all!

One of our 50s favorites by Miles Davis – and a record that offers the same twin-sax sound as his classic Kind Of Blue – with both John Coltrane and Cannonball Adderley working alongside Miles in the group! Rhythm here is by the Prestige-era trio of Red Garland on piano, Paul Chambers on bass, and Philly Joe Jones on drums – but it's the two saxophonists who really help Davis shape the feel of the record, pushing things past the initial Coltrane/Davis groove with a really wonderful sense of space and sound! Titles include the classic "Milestones", plus "Two Bass Hit", "Dr Jeckyll", and "Sid's Ahead". CD also features 3 bonus tracks – alternate takes of "Milestones", "Straight No Chaser", and "Two Bass Hit". CD

✨✧ Miles Davis & John ColtraneMiles & Coltrane ... LP
Columbia, Late 50s. Near Mint- ... Just Sold Out!
A strong collection of sides that Miles recorded for Columbia during the late 50s – most featuring a group that included John Coltrane, Cannonball Adderley, Bill Evans, Paul Chambers, and Jimmy Cobb, caught live at the Newport Jazz fest in 1958, playing the tunes "Ah-leu-cha", "Straight No Chaser", "Fran-Dance (Put Your Little Foot Right Out)", "Two Bass Hit", and "Bye Bye Blackbird". The remaining 2 tracks – "Little Melonae" and "Budo" – are from a 1955 set that includes Coltrane, plus the rhythm trio led by Red Garland and featuring Paul Chambers & Philly Joe Jones.

Miles Davis/Thelonious MonkMiles & Monk At Newport ... LP
Columbia, 1958/1963. Very Good+ ... $12.99
A slightly misleading record – but a great one nonetheless! From the title and cover, you might imagine that Thelonious Monk and Miles Davis were sharing the stage together at the Newport Jazz Festival – but instead, the album actually features separate performances by each artist – actually even recorded 5 years apart! The Miles Davis recording is from 1958 – a great year that has John Coltrane working with the group, alongside Wynton Kelly on piano, Cannonball Adderley on alto, Paul Chambers on bass, and Jimmy Cobb on drums – performing lively versions of "Ah Leu Cha", "Straight No Chaser", "Fran Dance" and "Two Bass Hit". The Monk material is even more unique – recorded in 1963, with Monk's usual quartet of Charlie Rouse on tenor, Butch Warren on bass, and Frankie Dunlop on drums – joined by the legendary Pee Wee Russell on clarinet – recently revived in jazz at the time, and displaying surprisingly modernist tendencies! Both Monk tracks are long – and include versions of "Nutty" and "Blue Monk". LP, Vinyl record album

Bill EvansEverybody Digs Bill Evans (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Riverside/Universal (Japan), 1958. Used ... $6.99
Everybody Digs Bill Evans – or at least it certainly seems that way from the cover endorsements by Miles Davis, Cannonball Adderley, and Ahmad Jamal – but the real proof is in the record, and the set is a great one from Bill's classic years on Riverside! Evans is at the peak of his early powers here – working with a straightforward rhythm combo that features Sam Jones on bass and Philly Joe Jones on drums – but still hitting those beautifully fluid, beautifully spacious lines that set his playing apart from most who'd come before him. Tracks include 3 solo numbers – "Lucky To Be Me", "Peace Piece", and the very short "Epilogue" – plus trio tracks "Night & Day", "Minority", "Tenderly", and "Oleo". CD features 1 bonus track! CD

Gil EvansNew Bottle Old Wine ... CD
Pacific Jazz/Blue Note, 1958. Used ... $7.99
A masterpiece through and through from arranger Gil Evans – a record of swinging modern backdrops, used to showcase both the solo talents of a young Cannonball Adderley, and the dynamic energy of Evans himself! Cannon's sharp-edged early tone is a really great sound for the record – far more modern than you might expect from later funk and soul sides of the 60s – and perfectly poised next to Gil's larger back drops to reignite a host of older tunes with new energy! And while the titles are familiar, the readings certainly are not – as the Evans pen has really changed things up beautifully – as you'll hear on numbers that include "St Louis Blues", "King Porter Stomp", "Willow Tree", "Struttin' With Some Barbeque", "Lester Leaps In", "Round About Midnight", "Manteca", and "Bird Feathers".

Art Farmer/Benny GolsonMeet The Jazztet ... CD
Argo/Chess, 1960. Used ... $6.99
Landmark work by one of the greatest jazz outfits of the early 60s! Art Farmer and Benny Golson were both known as well-composed players during the 50s – strongly soulful, but often with a fine sense of arrangement that usually tended towards the lyrical side of things. With this group, though, they turned that approach towards a heavier sounding style of jazz – tightly stepping soul jazz, in the manner that was being explored at the time by Cannonball Adderley, Art Blakey, and others – presented by Farmer and Golson with a bit more groove and a wonderful kick at the bottom! This album's the first the group cut together – and apart from trumpet by Farmer and tenor by Golson, it also features Curtis Fuller on trombone, McCoy Tyner on piano, Addison Farmer (brother of Art) on bass, and Lex Humphries on drums. Includes the massive original recording of "Killer Joe", which went onto become one of the most recorded jazz standards ever, plus the tracks "Blues March", "Mox Nix", "Park Avenue Petite", and "I Remember Clifford". Perfect tone, perfect groove, and a perfect sound all the way through! CD

✨✧ Dexter GordonResurgence (aka Resugrence Of Dexter Gordon) ... LP
Jazzland/Prestige, 1960. Near Mint- ... $6.99
An excellent album by Dexter Gordon – his first after a number of years spent without recording in the late 50s, and one that marked a real return to serious growth as a player during the 60s! The album takes the same approach as Dexter's soon to be recorded Blue Note classics – putting the tenorman in the company of some excellent sidemen – but the group's a bit larger too, with added horns from Richard Boon on trombone and Martin Banks on trumpet – in addition to rhythm from the trio of Dolo Coker on piano, Charles Green on bass, and Lawrence Marable on drums. There's some nice head arrangements that open up to some well-crafted tenor lines from Dex – and the set's got an extra-special feature in that it was produced by Cannonball Adderly as part of his "overlooked talents" series for Jazzland. Hard to believe that Gordon would qualify for that distinction at the time – especially given his rise a few years later! Titles include "Affair In Havana", "Field Day", "Jodi", "Home Run", and "Dolo". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Rick HolmesRemember To Remember/To The Unknowledgeable One ... 12-inch
Gold Mink, 1981. Very Good+ ... $49.99
Knowledge and righteousness galore – the one and only single recorded by Rick Holmes, best known for his vocal recitations on some of the classic Cannonball Adderley albums! Rick's working here in company that's every bit as great – letting Roy Ayers come up with a sweet jazzy groove in the background – stepping along with some slight female vocal support, while Rick speaks over the top in a tapestry of references from African-American music and culture! The tune's a classic that has gotten plenty of play on steppers dancefloors over the years – mellow, but righteous – and with a Roy Ayers touch that can't be denied! "To The Unknowledgeable One" follows in a similar mode – laidback and jazzy, with more spoken lyrics by Rick. 12-inch, Vinyl record

Sherman Irby QuartetLive At The Otto Club ... CD
Black Warrior, 2008. Used ... $6.99
We last heard altoist Sherman Irby on a hip tribute to Cannonball Adderley – and here, in a recent live set, he blows with an equally soulful vibe! The tunes are all quite long, and played by a quartet – which leaves plenty of room for Irby to take the lead on his solos – stretching out with a wonderfully soulful sense of imagination, really making the most of the ten-plus minutes of most of the numbers, while the group really soars alongside in a sweet modal groove! Titles include "Depth", "Laura's Love Song", "Countdown", "Four", and "Bohemia After Dark". CD
