Cannonball AdderleyThings Are Getting Better (SACD) ... CD
Riverside/Fantasy, 1958. Used ... $24.99
An album that definitely lives up to its title – given the great change and evolution in the style of Cannonball Adderley's music – definitely pointed towards the soul jazz fame to come in the 60s!

Nat AdderleyMuch Brass ... LP
Riverside, 1959. Very Good- ... $12.99
Despite the "much brass" tag in the title, this album's really just a sextet session – and not a clunky big brass ensemble one.

Texas tenors locked in hard formation!
