Cannonball Adderley Volume 1

LP (Item 54922) Dobre, Early 70s — Condition: Used
Temporarily Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album

(€- || £- || ¥-) (approx.)

An undated Cannonball Adderley live set – but most likely from the early 70s, given that the group features electric keyboards by Mike Wolf, bass by Walter Booker, and drums by Roy McCurdy. The album has the group opening up a lot more than on Cannon's live sets for Capitol – playing straight, soul jazz, and even a bit more outside material – and some of the tracks feature a great deal of opening remarks from Cannon. Titles include "Five Of A Kind", "Country Preacher", "Wobum", and "Unknown Song".  © 1996-2018, Dusty Groove, Inc.

We realize that there are many different interpretations of the standard grades used for pre-owned vinyl record albums & CD, so we thought we'd offer you the ones that we are working with, so you have an idea what we mean when we give the grade for a non-new item on our pages.

Used Vinyl Grades

Below are stated conditions for a used vinyl records at Dusty Groove. Grading for the cover should be assumed to be near (within a "+" or "-") the grading for the vinyl. If there is significant divergence from the condition of the vinyl, or specific flaws, these will be noted in the comments section of the item. However, please be aware that since the emphasis of this site is towards the music listener, our main concern is with the vinyl of any used item we sell. Additionally, please note that all of our records are graded visually; considering the volume of used vinyl we handle, it is impossible for us to listen to each record. If we spot any significant flaws, we make every attempt to listen through them and note how they play.

The following grading conditions apply to the vinyl component of an album or single:

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.

Things Are Getting Better
Riverside, 1958. Very Good
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! The group here has Adderley's alto in the company of some all-stars who may not be his ... LP, Vinyl record album
Julian Cannonball Adderley
EmArcy, Mid 50s. Very Good-
Very early work from Cannonball Adderley – recorded way before the funky years, when he was a hard-wailing soulful soloist with a lot of bop in his style! Cannon's paired here with brother Nat, a good companion even at this early stage – and the two of them solo in front of a large ... LP, Vinyl record album
Somethin' Else
Blue Note, 1958. Very Good-
A landmark album – even if it was the only session that Cannonball Adderley ever cut for Blue Note!

Flores Azules
Dobre, 1976. Very Good+
Excellent overlooked soul jazz session from the mid 70's, put out by the tiny Dobre label, who put out so many other great overlooked albums. Drummer Chuck Flores leads a tight LA quintet that includes Bobby Shew on trumpet and Bob Hardaway on tenor and flute. The group has a slightly Latin sound ... LP, Vinyl record album
Arista/Freedom, 1975. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold
Excellent Artista/Freedom reissue that brings together the full set from Cecil's 1962 performance at Cafe Monmartre. He's playing here in a trio that has Jimmy Lyons on alto and Sonny Murray on drums, and the music's a key link between his later seventies stuff, and his earlier work that you can ...

Extrapolation
Polydor, 1968. Near Mint-
Most likely our favorite album by John McLaughlin – and one that features him in a wonderfully spare setting – alongside John Surman on saxes, Brian Odges on bass, and Tony Oxley on drums. The playing has a free and loose quality that McLaughlin would later lose on some his more fusion- ... LP, Vinyl record album
Main Attraction
Kudu, 1976. Very Good+
Quite an unusual album from Grant Green – a record that's quite different than his earlier records for Blue Note, but still pretty darn great overall!

That's The Way It Is
Impulse, 1969. Very Good Gatefold
At the end of the 60s, Milt Jackson and Ray Brown cut some very groovy records together – teamed up in a great pairing of styles that pushed both of them way past the more standard sounds of earlier years!

Movin' Up!
Muse, 1977. Near Mint-
A nice little session from Don Patterson – proof that the organist was still going strong in the 70s! The album features a quartet with Richie Cole on alto, Billy James on drums, and Vic Juris on electric guitar – and the groove is laidback easy soul jazz, very much in the mode of ...
