4-CD SET Plus 3 BONUS TRACKS

This 4-CD set contains all known live recordings made in 1962 by the All-Star Cannonball Adderley Sextet, featuring Joe Zawinul on piano. It comprises the performances issued on the albums "The Cannonball Adderley Sextet in New York" (Riverside RLP 9404), "Jazz Workshop Revisited" (Riverside RLP 9444), and "Cannonball in Europe!" (Riverside RLP 9499).

The set is completed by a batch of rare and hard to fi nd broadcasts taped at Birdland, in New York, and the audio from a Los Angeles TV show (while sound quality on the latter two is not as good as on the professionally recorded albums, they are superb performances that are well worth listening to).

These were among Cannonball Adderley’s strongest efforts of the early 1960s. The band also features Cannonball’s brother Nat, as well as reedman Yusef Lateef, bassist Sam Jones, and drummer Louis Hayes. Among the many highlights are versions of Nat’s celebrated “The Jive Samba” and “Work Song”.

A further Birdland broadcast taped in 1960 with the group minus Lateef and with Victor Feldman on piano has been added as a bonus.
