Cannonball Adderley Sextet In New York

LP (Item 71005) Riverside, 1962 — Condition: Sealed

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".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Sealed

This is what it says, that the record is still held fast in shrink-wrap. We tend to be pretty suspicious about these things, so if the shrink-wrap doesn't look original, or if the record seems to have undergone some damage over time, we'll probably take it out of the wrapper to ensure that it's in good shape — which is why we don't have more of these. In some cases the shrink-wrap may be torn in spots, but if it's not possible the record has been taken out and played, the record will still qualify as "Sealed".

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.

Capitol (Japan), 1966. Very Good+
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 ... LP, Vinyl record album
Capitol, Late 60s. Near Mint-
A great lost chapter in the Cannonball/David Axelrod story! The record features Cannon's classic quintet performing some longer, more serious works with orchestral backing – and the sound is vaguely similar to some of Axelrod's "high concept" work for Capitol. The record features ... LP, Vinyl record album

Cannonball Adderley

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! 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 ...

George Russell

Stratus Seekers
Riverside, 1962. Very Good+
Key work from the guy who put the "modern" in modern jazz – the great George Russell, heard here in the company of some younger players who definitely help him seek out some new territory in music! The record's got a wonderful balance between sharp edges and swing – a sound ... LP, Vinyl record album

Mundell Lowe/Barbara Lea/Tony Burrello

This Could Lead to Love – Love Songs In High Fidelity
Riverside, Late 50s. Very Good+
An unusual record, with three different groupings of tracks – trio work with Mundell Lowe on guitar, George Duvivier on bass, and Jack Greenberg on English horn; vocals from Barbara Lea, with backing by a quintet led by Billy Taylor on piano; and solo piano from Tony Burrello. LP, Vinyl record album
Riverside, 1966. Near Mint-
A surprisingly nice pairing – the vibes of Milt Jackson and some larger horn backings that fall heavy on the trumpet and trombone side of the spectrum! The sound's not nearly as heavy or hokey as you'd expect – thanks to arrangements by Melba Liston – and the horns do a nice job ... LP, Vinyl record album
Riverside, Late 50s/Early 60s. Very Good+
A collection of sides cut in the early 60s by Wes for Riverside, collected later when the label was owned by ABC. There's a couple of cuts in a nice organ trio feature the great Mel Rhyne "Round Midnight" and "Yesterdays", plus several that feature his brothers Buddy and Monk ... LP, Vinyl record album

Lenny McBrowne & The Four Souls

Eastern Lights
Riverside, 1960. Very Good
A really compelling little album – the only one as a leader we've seen from Lenny McBrowne, a drummer who worked with Roland Kirk and some other left of center players in the 60s! The album's got a nice blend of modern and soul jazz themes – and was one of those excellent "Cannonba ... LP, Vinyl record album

Bill Perkins

Quietly There
Riverside/ABC, 1966/1970. Near Mint-
Amazing work from west coast saxophonist Bill Perkins – playing here in a mode that's quite different than his more famous 50s recordings! The style here is almost one you'd hear on late 60s A&M Records – definitely "quietly there", with a blend of Perkins' reeds and ... LP, Vinyl record album

Nat Adderley

Much Brass
Riverside, 1959. Very Good-
Despite the "much brass" tag in the title, this album's really just a sextet session – and not a clunky big brass ensemble one. Cannonball's brother plays with a very swingin' sextet that includes the brassy touches of Slide Hampton on trombone and Laymon Jackson on tuba. Wynton ... LP, Vinyl record album
