This release presents the complete original album Cannonball’s Bossa Nova (Riverside RLP9455), which was Cannonball Adderley’s contribution to the bossa nova craze that pervaded the United States in the early 1960s. For this special occasion, he wasn’t backed by his usual group, but by an authentic bossa nova formation featuring celebrated Brazilian musicians, like pianist Sérgio Mendes, future Weather Report percussionist Dom Um Romao, and guitarist Durval Ferreira. Two alternate versions from the same sessions, as well as the saxophonist’s earliest existing recording of his brother Nat Adderley’s “The Jive Samba” –taped by Cannonball’s regular group (featuring Nat)– have been included as bonus tracks. The latter song would become a regular feature in the quintet’s repertoire.

As a further bonus, we have added a complete session featuring Cannonball (who plays solos on all tracks) and Milt Jackson.
