INCLUDES BONUS ALBUM: PORTRAIT OF CANNONBALL

“The track everyone remembers is the long, sublimely relaxed lope through ‘Autumn Leaves’. Like Miles, Cannonball was never a fiery, virtuosic player. He knew his range and his limit, and within it, he could do anything, which is a fine art in itself. The contrast between the two frontmen, both in sound and style is one of the album’s treats: throughout, Adderley’s vitalism is the perfect foil to Miles’s narrow eyed lyricism.” PENGUIN GUIDE TO JAZZ

“’Autumn Leaves’ and ‘Love for Sale’ will never mean the same after listening to this album, this masterpiece of the 1950’s which hasn’t aged at all today in 2020. Yes, Somethin’ Else is really somethin’ else.” JAZZ MAGAZINE
