Cannonball Adderley – Cannonball Adderley Quintet in Chicago

Cannonball Adderley is fast becoming one of my favourite jazz artists and saxophonists. I recently discovered the incredible “Somethin’ Else” and am now working my way through his discog. This record is a gem as he teams up with John  Coltrane to lead an aurally pleasurable 30 minutes of jazz. Limehouse Blues opens the record up with fantastic pace and hard bopping tunes. While the slower numbers do not dissapoint in Stars Fell on Alabama you can even here Cannonball scatting in the background – truly infectious stuff.
