A lost chapter in the David Axelrod/
Cannonball Adderley tradition – and one of Nat
's best albums from the 70s! Nat
's funky trumpet sits nicely in moody arrangements by David Axelrod and Jimmy Jones – and the group features electric piano by George Duke, plus guest playing by Cannonball Adderley, Hal Galper, and Johnny Watson. Includes a few cuts with vocals by Nat
, done in a weird funky style that's vaguely similar to Eugene McDaniels. Titles include "Traffic", "Contant 19", "59 Go & Pass", "Quit It", "Watermelon Man", and "Song Of The Valez Diamond", which has some cool electronics!
