AVID Jazz here presents three classic Cannonball Adderley albums plus, including original LP liner notes on a finely re-mastered and low priced double CD.
Something Else, Cannonballs Sharpshooters, Them Dirty Blues plus 3 of 5 tracks from In San Francisco.
We kick off with the stone cold classic Somethin Else featuring a meeting of three of the so called schools of jazz
.Cannonball from the be-bop school of Charlie Parker, Miles Davis from pretty much his own school of cool jazz (albeit via Bird who he famously played with in the 40s) and the hard funk/hard bop sound of Hank Jones from the school of Art Blakey! Our three other album selections feature Cannonball with his brother, the often underrated trumpet and cornet player Nat Adderley alongside Bobby Timmins on piano, Sam Jones on bass and Louis Hayes on drums. For Sharpshooters the drum stool is taken by Jimmy Cobb while Junior Mance takes over on piano.
All three albums plus have been digitally re-mastered for probably the finest sound quality ever!
